"If you're going to a march, you're going to want a sign"--and this cheerful, introductory handbook. Inspired by author Martha Freeman's own experiences, it addresses many of the questions kids might have: What should I wear? How will I get there? Where can I go to the bathroom? Is it okay to dance? (It is!). All the while the text focuses on our Constitutional right as Americans to assemble . . . whatever our political point of view.
Martha worked as a newspaper reporter, copy editor, substitute teacher, college lecturer, advertising copywriter and magazine writer before finding her true calling as a writer of children's books. She has since written 31 books for children of all ages. Fun facts: Martha has not owned a working television in 35 years. Martha is mostly a vegetarian but makes an exception on Thanksgiving. She always remembers to thank the turkey. One of Martha's few talents is making piecrust. On good days, Martha writes a poem before breakfast (but after coffee). Martha's favorite book is War and Peace. No, she did not write that one.View Author
