Storytime with Martha Freeman

March Cover.jpg

“If you’re going to a march, you’re going to want a sign”—and this inspiring handbook, which introduces children to the world of action and activism. 

All little scholars are welcome for this special storytime with children's author, Martha Freeman! She'll read from her brand-new children's book, If You're Going to a March. This event is free and open to the public! 

About the Book:

As more and more children attend the growing number of marches across the country, this cheerful guide serves as a great reference tool and conversation starter for youthful participants. Inspired by author Martha Freeman’s own experiences, this picture book addresses many of the questions kids might have: What should I wear? How will I get there? Where will I be able to go to the bathroom? Is it okay to dance? (Yes, it is!). All the while the text stays focused on the fact that the right to assemble is a Constitutional part of our life as Americans . . . whatever our political point of view.

About the Author: 

Martha Freeman has been marching since she was in middle school. Her 30 children’s books include Mrs. Wow Never Wanted a Cow, Zap!, and Effie Starr Zook Has One More Question. She has three children and lives in Philadelphia.
