Reviews

A story of John Kennedy's short but historic life that rings with truth and excitement. Readers of all ages... will appreciate this moving lesson in American history.--Senator Harris Wofford, President John F. Kennedy's Special Assistant on Civil Rights **Starred Review. Christie's impressionistic illustrations are poignant...Though there are numerous biographies on Kennedy for this audience, few focus solely on his role in civil rights, making this work a dynamic addition for U.S. history collections.--Margaret Nunes, Gwinnett County Public Library, GA "School Library Journal " ...a well-crafted book that respects the complex president Kennedy was, respects child readers, and respects the sometimes thorny intricacies of conviction. Be sure to find a copy, come April.--Julie Danielson "Kirkus Reviews " This is a timely and relevant book...Corey's prose rings natural and true, and will definitely feel relatable to young teens and 'tweens who are seeking to define themselves and their principals. Artist R. Gregory Christie's illustrations of children with elongated necks and determined faces courageously carrying the signs that demand equality all help to loan a collage-ish look and feel to this important book. Use this to teach tolerance, equality, integration, social studies, and the fundamentals of American laws.--Rita Lorraine Hubbard "New York Journal of Books "
