I am a teacher and I read this book to my class for Black History Month. It was very inspirational. The children shared their ideas for how they wanted to make changes in their community. The book is well written and the pictures are great.

Review title: That 1st Step. Inside covers of the book have some great quotes; the quotes are worth using for inspiring people to believe that they have within them great abilities. Words to encourage fortitude and brilliance from each individual are included within the storyline and these words offer hope to the reader. *Inspirational. *Motivational. *Great for encouraging all people to seek to help others and change their world for the better.
