Let Freedom Sing
There are many topics which we could struggle to discuss with children. How do you explain the bravery shown by the people who stood up to racial injustice? How do we inspire them to draw on their own courage when they are faced with prejudice?
Let Freedom Sing is a book which highlights the acts of people who let their lights shine in the face of great injustice. The book takes songs of the period and tells the story of people like Rosa Parks who campaigned for their civil rights. The book doesn’t shy from the truth yet tells the story in simple terms illustrated by Vanessa Newton’s stunning pictures.
