Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Gr 2-4 Adler and his son, Michael, have collaborated to produce another respectable addition to the biography series the senior Adler began years ago. Those owning Kathleen Krull s Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez (Harcourt, 2003), a standout biography of Chavez for this age group, will still want to consider this title because of its slightly different bent. While Krull emphasizes Chavez s younger years that inspired him to become an activist and focuses on the 1965 grape pickers boycott and the 300-mile march that resulted in the first farm workers contract, the Adlers book includes those events, but provides a more linear approach. It covers Chavez s life from birth to death, providing important facts, such as the posthumous award of the Congressional Medal of Freedom, not mentioned in Krull s title. Olofsdotter s lively, earth-toned illustrations extend the text. Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
