Overview

A powerful and accesible bilingual picture book that highlights "the power and impact of ordinary but dedicated citizens."*

Every day, thousands of farmworkers harvested the food that ended up on kitchen tables all over the country. But at the end of the day, when the workers sat down to eat, there were only beans on their own tables. Then Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez teamed up. Together they motivated the workers to fight for their rights and, in the process, changed history.

Award-winning author Monica Brown and acclaimed illustrator Joe Cepeda join together to create this stunning tribute to two of the most influential people of the twentieth century.

"I love that this book introduces Dolores and Cesar as children and connects their early life experiences to the decisions they made as they grew up," commented reviewer Maria Ramos-Chertok in the blog "Latinxs in Kid Lit." "Given that I longed for bilingual children's books when my two sons were growing up, I only wish I had known about this book earlier." She added that Side by Side offers opportunities to open discussions about work and career, feminism, and friendship, as well as a fresh perspective on history.

Todos los dias, miles de campesinos cosechaban los alimentos que se servian en los hogares de todo el pais. Pero al terminar la jornada, cuando los campesinos se sentaban a comer, lo unico que habia en sus propias mesas era frijoles. Entonces, Dolores Huerta y Cesar Chavez se unieron para motivar a los trabajadores a luchar por sus derechos y en el proceso, cambiaron el curso de la historia.

La premiada autora Monica Brown y el aclamado ilustrador Joe Cepeda se unen para crear este impresionante tributo a dos de las personas mas influentes del siglo veinte.

This bilingual picture book tells the story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez, who organized migrant workers in the 1960s. Brown begins by sketching their upbringings: Huerta, an activist from the start, "raise money for soldiers fighting in World War II," while Chavez and his family were forced to become migrants themselves. Meeting later, they joined forces to fight for better working conditions--the first of many successes during decades of activism. Cepeda's highly textural paintings--using oils, acrylics, and collage--never put the duo on a pedestal, and instead emphasize the power and impact of ordinary but dedicated citizens. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
