Alfredo is excited for the first day of second grade - but he isn't allowed to go because of a new Texas state law that decreed that illegal immigrants could not attend public school. But Alfredo's younger brother, Jose, was born in the U.S., so the family doesn't want to return to Mexico, and they decide to fight the law. Their lawyer argued that the Texas state law violated the right to "equal protection" under the 14th amendment and was therefore unconstitutional - and Judge William James Justice agreed!

This book describes the life of Ben Shahn and his struggles through life and his desire to create art that reflects injustices and other important topics. This book would serve a s great introduction to the injustices that many people face or have faced. We see Ben Shahn and his Jewish family attacked in their home country and then immigrate to the US where they still face challenges. This book would be best utilized in younger grades to introduce hard topics in a way that provides hope. It has an Author's note that talks about his life and says that he was so involved that you could track history through looking at his paintings. A great book for anyone who wants to hear a story of success despite the seemingly neverending struggles… (mere)
