Woohoo! Read. Learn. Repeat. is 6 months old, and I’m celebrating with a 5 WEEK GIVEAWAY event. That’s right! Each week for the next five weeks, I’m giving away a new picture book.
This week’s fantastic prize is If You’re Going to a March by Martha Freeman, illustrated by Violet Kim. I am featuring it in an upcoming post on Social Activism. Until then, I’ll tell you that it’s beautifully illustrated and perfectly written to affirm agency in a democracy and inspire civic engagement.

“If you’re going to a march, you’re going to want a sign”—and this inspiring handbook, which introduces children to the world of action and activism.
As more and more children attend the growing number of marches across the country, this cheerful guide serves as a great reference tool and conversation starter for youthful participants. Inspired by author Martha Freeman’s own experiences, this picture book addresses many of the questions kids might have: What should I wear? How will I get there? Where will I be able to go to the bathroom? Is it okay to dance? (Yes, it is!). All the while the text stays focused on the fact that the right to assemble is a Constitutional part of our life as Americans . . . whatever our political point of view.
