Harvesting Hope
by Kathleen Krull, Illustrated by Yuyi Morales

What if you lost your beautiful home and had to move to a strange new place?
What if your new house was filthy and had no doors?
What if your whole family had to work in the fields and only got paid $.30 a day?
What if your boss wouldn't give you any food or clean water to drink?
What if you had no restroom?
What if your boss hit you because you complained?
What if you knew that your boss had murdered people because they quit?
What would you do?
Would you be courageous enough to do something about it?
Would you have enough character to find nonviolent ways to make changes?

Cesar Chavez did. This is the story of his life. The story of a man who many call a HERO.

Plus Any Small Goodness:

Plus Esperanza Rising:
