The story of Clara Lemlich and the Shirtwaist Maker s Strike of 1909 We are of course not going to miss the instantaneous ladders to FLESH AND BLOOD SO CHEAP right friendsThis is a nicely written book by Michelle Markel with plenty of sentence variety to serve well as a mentor text for the younger reader Creative uses of punctuation could serve as an introduction to the tricky nuances of the em dash Varying sentence lengths could also serve well introduced in the Writer s Workshop with BRAVE GIRL as a mentor textThe story of Clara Lemlich here could be readily paired with the picture book coming out soon by Tanya Lee Stone WHO SAYS WOMEN CANNOT BE DOCTORSBut the star of this show is certainly the illustrations by Melissa Sweet From the rows and rows of workers seen from above that seems to become a row of stitches Houses and buildings stack on top of each other like uilt suares to suggest crowded living conditions There are mixed media treats throughout the book like this Some of the illustrations actually look as though they have been sewn into the book Of course Sweet selects from a number of textures and patterns including a banker s note turned on its side to become a building in a city scapeBut my favorite image of all is the one at the end of the book with Clara whose back is to the reader looking out over the bay to gaze at the Statue of Liberty In an image such as this we are able to see the same love for place that we saw in Balloons Over BroadwayI humbly suggest that we get at least one Melissa Sweet illustrated title each year as they are just a joy to look through
