The Protest (Confetti Kids #10)
When Lily asks her neighbor Mr. Sam why he looks sad, he tells her that their community garden is going to be replaced by a parking lot. Now Lily is upset, and she quickly gathers her friends—and fellow gardeners—to tell them the news. But then she gets a great idea: she’ll organize a rally to protest the parking lot! With the help of family and neighbors, Lily and her friends make plans, fliers, signs, and a chant for the big day. In this new installment in the upstanding Confetti Kids beginning-reader series, coded blue for emergent readers, short sentences and simple dialogue accompany watercolor illustrations that reflect Lily’s diverse neighborhood and the power kids can have in their communities. The story is followed by critical thinking questions and activities.
