★ Beautiful illustrations based on the bilingual children's book -Vicki and A Summer of Change! ¡Vicki y un verano de cambio! ★

Inspired by actual events, the book recounts what happened in East Harlem, New York in 1969 when the activist Young Lords Organization united with residents to make positive neighborhood changes. Rotting garbage overwhelms the streets because city sanitation trucks rarely pick up the trash. The story follows Vicki and her older sister, Valentina, who live in East Harlem. "You're never too young to make a difference!" Valentina says. Together they discover they can help change their community and the world. The bilingual English/Spanish book is for children 5 to 8 years old.
