A wonderful story to teach kids a powerful lesson.
They can make a difference. Their voice matters.
"Speak Up" takes the young reader through many scenarios in a lyrical way, telling them when it is the right time to say something, to talk to an adult or stand up for someone else. It deals with issues from racism to bullying to being grateful and giving compliments. There are so many times when it's right for kids to be seen AND heard.
The book is completely adorable, with a diverse cast of characters. It's colorful and engaging, perfect for the youngest readers and still important if they're a tad older. It's never too late for a kid to learn the lessons in these pages.

Final Verdict: A wonderfully written story, weaving an important message in with engaging illustrations to create a book parents and teachers will want to read to their children over and over.
