    Together We March tells about twenty-five of the most important protest movements around the world that changed history. The book opens with early protest provements, including the March of the Mill Children in 1903 to protect children from early labor, the Salt March in India in 1930 to secure India's independence from Britain, and the Mud March in England in 1907 for women's rights to vote. It moves to more recent protest movements including The March Against Death, against the Vietnam War in Together We March tells about twenty-five of the most important protest movements around the world that changed history.

It's an excellent first look at protest movements for upper elementary and middle grade students.

    I loved this book. It was incredibly informative, full of passion and emotion, and well rounded. It discussed 25 different march protests from all over the world, covering different causes, starting at the turn of the 20th century to current day. They also did a great job tying more current marches with past marches that were similar in cause.

    So well done! And I learned so much! I usually tend to dislike really text heavy or long picture books because it ends up being such a hard sell for kids (the younger kids who like pictures books can't read /understand it and the older kids who can read and understand it, don't want to read a picture book). But this was done really well. I learned so much! Even some of the marches that I knew a lot about before reading this book, I learned more about.

There were some marches that took place during modern times that I felt like I should have known about but didn't (the puppet one). The book inspired me to want to get out there the next time a big march is organized!

    I like this book, but I just don't love it. I learned about many protest movements that I was unaware of and the information provided was good. However, the format of this book threw me a little. I'm not sure why a middle-grade book with tons of information has been published in picture book format. I would have liked it better if it were presented in a slimmer, chapter-book format. I also thought the conclusions to some of the marches felt a little insubstantial. Still, I'm glad I read this. I like this book, but I just don't love it.

    Wonderful idea for a book. The format bothered me because it seems like a picture book, but it has so much text on each pages it really isn't a picture book. The other thing that bothered me was that some politicians are named for negative things they've done according to the author (e.g., Mitt Romney). Other politicians are not named but only alluded to (e.g., Donald Trump). It made me feel that the book was biased. Enjoyed the style of the illustrations. Wonderful idea for a book.

    This is not the cute, colorful picture book I expected from the cover, but it is a well put together collection of protest movements through history. They span place and time and offer a diverse look at marches through history. The text is dense and this is definitely better for older children. My favorite part was the fun timeline at the back of the book.

    I must say, I was totally thrilled by the fact that Tangerine Mussolini's name was NEVER mentioned for the protests that happened during his reign of terror. 5 stars for never having to read his name!

    Solid backmatter, could do with a table of contents. Good information but I wish it had been in a chapter book vs. picture book format. There's a LOT of text and a chapter book could have added even more nuance. Solid backmatter, could do with a table of contents.

    I deeply appreciate the long selected bibliography included in the end, as well as the direction to visit the author's website for the full bibliography.

    Substantial, straightforward, and with an international approach. We need to hand children more books about history like this one.

    Purchasing this for many families with children ages 6 or 7+, and recommending it to everyone else for the perspective and history, for the illustrations--for everything about it!

    Very meaty. It covers a lot of ground and would be great in the classroom.
