    I really enjoyed this collection, it was a very quick read that I picked up while waiting to board my flight home from NYC. There were a lot of writers and creators I hadn't seen or read from before, so I am interested in checking out some more works from a few of them! What I enjoyed the most about this anthology was its diversity in theme and presentation, each entry was unique and I loved getting more exposure into some of the poetry and artwork styles that were included.

It is short which makes it a very quick read, and bright and colourful in a way that makes you want to keep turning the page. If you are looking for a fun but important coffee table book, I would recommend this one! http://theprincessgummybearreviews.bl...

    Above all, this collection leave me with the feeling that there are caring adults who truly see children, who know how difficult these times can be, and who admire all the ways that our children walk in this world. Authors ask questions, share wisdom and provide support. By doing so, they open the window to talking about these difficult times.

Authors ask questions, share wisdom and provide support. By doing so, they open the window to talking about these difficult times. In the opening poem, Wade Hudson asks: "What shall we tell you when our world sometimes seems dark and uninviting? What shall we tell you when hateful words that wound and bully are thrown like bricks against a wall, shattering into debris?" I especially appreciate the variety in this collection. These are heavy topics, and yet readers turn the pages and find so many different approaches. Jacqueline Woodson writes a letter to her children, reminding them to be safe and be kind as they walk in the world. Joseph Bruchac gives advice about choosing a friend who "sees how beautiful you are, even on days when you're sad." Zetta Elliott reminds children that "You Too Can Fly." The illustrations move from painting with deep hues, to drawings with soft warm touch, to photographs showing children of different races and ethnicities. I definitely recommend this collection for every elementary and middle school library. I'll be bringing it to my new high school library to see what our students think of it.

    Heartfelt advice and inspiration for young readers feeling discouraged by the current atrocious political climate and/or dealing with bullying based on their heritage and/or skin color. There are a variety of authors, formats, and illustrations/photographs that bring encouragement and motivation for kids to lift their voices and get involved, but to also know at the end of the day that you're loved and not alone.

    Powerful poems, stories and letters to remind us and our children that a path is still ahead, as difficult as it sometimes seems during these current years of political turmoil.

    I haven't finished reading every word of every page, but it seems prophetic to open this book (library copy--will be buying multiples for my classroom) right after finishing TROUBLEMAKERS, which gives us a new lens and new ways to define the students who RISE RESIST and RAISE THEIR VOICES. I can't wait to begin shining a spotlight on the ways voices have historically been raised in response to the wrongs of the world.

    With a country so divided, children naturally notice the tension and fear the future. Editors Wade Hudson and Cheryl Willis Hudson wanted to combat this hopelessness, so they asked many diverse artists to create works that would address the future. The result is a magnificent collection of creative works--poems, letters, essays, illustrations--that give hope and impart wisdom to today's children, especially children of color.

    Perhaps to describe this book, I will use words from the forward by Ashley Bryan: "I'm sure just to touch this book, We Rise, We Resist, We Raise Our Voices, will lift your spirits."

Editors Wade Hudson and Cheryl Willis Hudson tell in their introduction that they were inspired by their seven-year-old granddaughter who was so upset by the result of the 2016 presidential election. They write that she was frightened and confused, worried that her world would change. They asked themselves what could they tell her, what words of comfort could they offer? They have gathered thirty authors and nearly that many illustrators for each double-page piece to give those words of inspiration and love and hope. There is a poem by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Jeffery B. Weatherford that speaks of The Golden Rule. Kwame Alexander writes his story, illustrated by Ekua Holmes, about a night while getting ice cream with his daughter and the worry she has on the way. The editors each share a piece, Wade questions "What Shall We Tell You? with a poignant portrait of mother and child by Floyd Cooper accompanying it. Cheryl shares a quilt she created to illustrate the song, 'The Gospel Train': "The fare is cheap and all can go./The rich and poor are there./No second-class on board the train,/no difference in the fare." Ellen Oh, Margarita Engle, Hena Khan. . . I could continue on. Each piece is stunning in its message, beautiful in its art. There are brief biographies of each contributor, photo credits, and an index at the back. There is also a table of contents. I imagine how wonderful it would be to read and discuss one of these pieces each morning with a class. I have read parts to my granddaughters (seven and nine) and it's a pleasure to enjoy with them, too.

This is a must-purchase for every library and will make an excellent read aloud and mentor text.

    This book was written in response to the question of African American parents who were struggling with what to tell their kids in light of some of the racism making its way more readily into American political rhetoric. It is short stories, poems, and art designed to restore hope to children who might be frightened. A beautiful keepsake.

    I am in love with this book and its gorgeous art. It’s a series of short stories, essays, letters, and more from various authors (many children’s, middle grade, and YA). This compilation is perfect to help explain what is going on in the country these days, while grounding today’s struggles and resistance in history (especially the civil rights era).

It maintains a hopeful tone while preparing readers to speak out. Go and buy this book when it comes out! Thanks to Crown/ PRH for providing an ARC at the American Library Association conference.

    How can we use this book in the classroom? Other reviewers have eloquently described the beauty of the writing from a diverse group of voices represented in this book. (I was inspired by the book and the book reviews!) If you have a smartboard, I’d purchase the Kindle version of this and project a piece for reading, relishing and discussing—in 3rd through 9th grades.

Other reviewers have eloquently described the beauty of the writing from a diverse group of voices represented in this book. (I was inspired by the book and the book reviews!) If you have a smartboard, I’d purchase the Kindle version of this and project a piece for reading, relishing and discussing—in 3rd through 9th grades. There are so many pieces that lend themselves to teacher or student-led discussions—that can be used with students at different ages. With middle grade students, post the poem ‘Drumbeat for Change’ by Kelly Starling Lyons. Read it aloud and then ask students to read on their own and enjoy reading with a partner. The intro to this poem is stunningly beautiful – “This world feels upside down sometimes, like a twisted house of mirrors where people in charge are bullies…” Closely read and discuss particular lines like, “Together, we are a mountain no one can destroy” and “When you feel angry or afraid, remember what you hold inside.” Ask the students to consider questions like, “Why might this be important to someone?” or “Who is the author’s audience?” and “How does the author reach out to her audience?” Post the illustration by Rafael Lopez (for Margarita Engle’s poem ‘All Nations are Neighbors and I Wonder’) and provide quiet time for the students to look carefully and notice. You might ask “What do you notice?” and “What is the illustrator’s message?” And then read the poem. Use the poem and illustration as two texts to compare and contrast. “How do these two ‘texts’ support each other?” With middle school and early high school students, post the poem Next by Lesa Cline-Ransome for students to read and then read again. Ask the students to consider this question, “What resonates with you?” and “How does the word ‘next’ represent a big idea in this piece?” and “How does the author use history as a lens for how we can ‘keep growing tall and strong’?” (BTW – this poem could easily be integrated into conversations in history/social studies classrooms.) If you are a writing workshop teacher, there are endless possibilities as far as using pieces in this text as mentors for writers - grades 3-12. A variety of formats, of voices, of uses of literary devices. Seriously. I could go on and on. For yourself, as an educator, take this book home and read a piece each night. Teaching can be a tough job—we frequently carry the worries of our students home with us, huh? The words in this book are inspiring and soothing. Share this book with ALL students—not just those who may feel that they are on the margins of society or are bullied or are experiencing racism. We do not know all of our students’ concerns. There are words of care for them in this book—that we may not even realize. AND there is room for discussion if the content does NOT resonate with them, discussions about the world beyond our classroom walls, beyond their small part of the world. If you are shy about talking politics in the classroom, there is still a place for this book in your work with students. This book is relevant (in so many ways) beyond the politics of today.

    Poetry/Information/Social Action, 2018 This book is a powerful collection of works that will inspire and encourage all students to use their voices to take social action. This book is incredibly poignant and I would recommend for any grade level from 2nd to 8th grade, and into high school.
