Dolores Huerta: A Hero to Migrant Workers - Cover
Dolores Huerta: A Hero to Migrant Workers
Sarah Warren, Marshall Cavendish Children, Terrytown, NY 2012
 
Dolores is a teacher, a mother, and a friend. She wants to know why her students are hungry and why they don't have shoes. Dolores is a teacher, a warrior, an organizer, and a peacemaker. In this beautifully written, realistically illustrated book, children can see the key role Huerta played in organizing farm workers to demand an end to dangerous working conditions, to achieve a living wage, and to get health care so they could raise healthy children. This is one of the rare books that brings the issues of labor struggles and unionization to the understanding of young children. A powerful Jane Addams Honor Book for 2013.
