Description
Gandhi's peaceful revolution is the focus of this picture book, part of the inspiring New York Times bestselling biography series about heroes. As a young man in India, Gandhi saw firsthand how people were treated unfairly. Refusing to accept injustice, he came up with a brilliant way to fight back through quiet, peaceful protest. He took his methods with him from South Africa back to India, where he led a nonviolent revolution that freed his country from British rule. Through his calm, steady heroism, Gandhi changed everything for India and inspired civil rights movements all over the world, proving that the smallest of us can be the most powerful.This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos.

        November 15, 2017
        Grades 1-3 This relatable and moving account of Mahatma Gandhi's life in India and South Africa is part of the Ordinary People Can Change the World series, and its graphic memoir format packs in a great deal of emotion with information. For example, the plight of the untouchables, the poorest of the poor in India, comes across vividly in panels showing young Gandhi and his father walking through streets crowded with their huddled forms. When Gandhi is kicked out of a first-class train compartment in South Africa because of his brown skin, the scene has extra force due to Gandhi's narration, the dialogue bubbles, and the punchy illustrations. Gandhi is shown throughout as an old man but child-size. As a child, he says, he was shy, afraid of the dark and snakes, and bad at sports and multiplication. This humanizing device should make readers take heart, and take to heart the lessons that Gandhi goes on to teach about the importance of taking action, protesting nonviolently, and becoming a voice for the voiceless.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
