Side by Side/Lado a Lado: The Story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez/La Historia de Dolores Huerta y Cesar Chavezby Monica Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Every day, thousands of farmworkers harvested the food that ended up on kitchen tables all over the country. But at the end of the day, when the workers sat down to eat, there were only beans on their own tables. Then Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez teamed up. Together they motivated the workers to fight for their rights and, in the process, changed history.
Award-winning author Monica Brown and acclaimed illustrator Joe Cepeda join together to create this stunning tribute to two of the most influential people of the twentieth century.
Todos los días, miles de campesinos cosechaban los alimentos que se servían en los hogares de todo el país. Pero al terminar la jornada, cuando los campesinos se sentaban a comer, lo único que había en sus propias mesas era frijoles. Entonces, Dolores Huerta y César Chávez se unieron para motivar a los trabajadores a luchar por sus derechos y en el proceso, cambiaron el curso de la historia.
La premiada autora Monica Brown y el aclamado ilustrador Joe Cepeda se unen para crear éste impresionante tributo a dos de las personas más influentes del siglo veinte.
"This bilingual picture book tells the story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, who organized migrant workers in the 1960s. Brown begins by sketching their upbringings: Huerta, an activist from the start, 'raise money for soldiers fighting in World War II,' while Chavez and his family were forced to become migrants themselves. Meeting later, they joined forces to fight for better working conditions--the first of many successes during decades of activism. Cepeda's highly textural paintings--using oils, acrylics, and collage--never put the duo on a pedestal, and instead emphasize the power and impact of ordinary but dedicated citizens. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
Award-winning author Brown teams up with acclaimed illustrator Cepeda to create this powerful bilingual picture-book biography that pays tribute to Mexican-American culture by beautifully narrating the collaboration between Huerta and Chavez. Full color.
