Provoke  lively discussion about a fair living wage and the purpose of picket lines in grades 2-8 by reading and discussing Joelitos Big Decision/ La gran decisión de Joelito (Hardball Press). The book tells the story of a ten-year-old Joelito who learns about the struggle for economic justice as he heads toward the door of MacMann’s Burger Restaurant for his regular Friday-night family dinner. There he finds his best friend standing outside MacMann’s with his parents protesting for higher wages.  Joelito has to choose between a juicy burger and standing with his friend. Beautifully illustrated.
