César: ¡Sí, se puede! Yes, We Can!

This book is about Cesar Chavez
Discover the stirring journey of César Chávez in "César: ¡Sí, se puede! Yes, We Can!", a captivating book that earned the ALA Pura Belpré Honor for both Narrative and Illustration, and stands as an ALA Notable Book. Born into the struggles of a migrant worker family during the Great Depression in Yuma, Arizona, César Chávez rose from his early cessation of formal education after the eighth grade to become a seminal figure in the fight for racial and economic justice. Founding the National Farm Workers Association, Chávez championed the rights of farm workers, advocating for self-reliance and empowerment through nonviolent activism. Richly portrayed through evocative poems and vivid illustrations by Carmen T. Bernier-Grand and David Díaz, this book is a tribute to Chávez’s enduring legacy. Ideal for middle school readers, this narrative not only highlights the resilience and determination of Chávez but also prompts reflection on how one person's courage can inspire a collective movement for change.
