Format: Picture Book
This picture book was written in commemoration of a lunch counter sit-in by some college students that happened in 1960. So the story goes, about four young men who stood up by sitting down. They went into Woolworth’s lunch counter where they were denied service. The illustrations were inspired by these events and are in a different art style but very colorful and detailed for the story. This book is a great read aloud for students and can be a good conversation starter for a unit on the civil rights movement.
