#PublicationDay #BookReview for Liberty’s Civil Rights Road Trip by Michael W. Waters #LibertysCivilRightsRoadTrip #NewRelease #ChildrensBook @Flyaway_Books

Based on a real-life trip, Liberty and her friend Abdullah visit significant places from the civil rights movement, inspiring them to come together with others to create a better world.

Time to board the bus! Liberty and her friend Abdullah, with their families and a diverse group of passengers, head off to their first stop: Jackson, Mississippi. Next on their map are Glendora, Memphis, Birmingham, Montgomery, and finally Selma, for a march across the iconic Edmund Pettus Bridge.

As told through the innocent view of a child, Liberty’s Civil Rights Road Trip serves as an early introduction to places, people, and events that transformed history. The story is inspired by an actual journey led by author Michael W. Waters, bringing together a multigenerational group to witness key locations from the civil rights movement. An author’s note and more information about each stop on Liberty’s trip offer ways for adults to expand the conversation with young readers.

MY REVIEW

I really enjoyed this story and it was a great way for the road trip that was taken to be told and brought to life.

I liked that the end of the book too had a little focus on each of the places visited to show why they were so important and the acts that took place which ultimately helped to change history too.  It also shows how far we have come in a lot of respects too – even if there is still quite a way to go too in some places and with some of the civil rights available

It is 5 stars from me for this one, a great conversations starter for children and a book that can be used to bring to light different topics for more discussions too

It was a wonderful book – very well written, it had some lovely illustrations and was a pleasure to read – very highly recommended!
