A Picture Book of Cesar Chavez (David A. Adler) - The selfless struggles of labor leader Chavez are given a tempered and lucid treatment in this educational overview. It only takes one page for the Adlers to zero in on the theme of inequality: “Chavez and others who helped put food on Americans’ tables often had no tables of their own, no real homes.” After losing their farm in the Great Depression, the Chavez family headed west, living an itinerant lifestyle as they moved from farm to farm—and shuttling young Cesar among 65 different elementary schools. The book focuses mainly on Chavez’s later fights for better wages and safer working conditions. An elegant introduction to a man who inspired thousands. Recommended for ages 9-12.

A renegade class-mouse-gone-wild makes Cesar contemplate utter freedom, but minding Peace the turtle's advice, he follows his heart and returns to Ms. Lee's room. Recommended for ages 7-10.

César Chávez (31 Mar 1927 – 23 Apr 1993) - César Estrada Chávez was an American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). A Mexican American, Chávez became the best known Latino civil rights activist. His public-relations approach to unionism and aggressive but nonviolent tactics made the farm workers' struggle a moral cause with nationwide support. By the late 1970s, his tactics had forced growers to recognize the UFW as the bargaining agent for 50,000 field workers in California and Florida. Chavez was a charismatic, gifted speaker who inspired Latinos to band together and devote themselves to the farm workers' movement. Claiming as his models Gandhi and Martin Luther King, he called on his people to "Make a solemn promise: to enjoy our rightful part of the riches of this land, to throw off the yoke of being considered as agricultural implements or slaves. We are free men and we demand justice." After his death he became a major historical icon for the Latino community, and for liberals generally, symbolizing militant support for workers and for Hispanic power based on grass roots organizing and his slogan "Sí, se puede" (Spanish for "Yes, it is possible").
