This story gave me goosebumps. The very idea that it would be against the law for someone to go to school is against everything I believe in. One of the quotes is about courage and bravery being a small thing. That really struck a chord and I know it will translate well into the classroom with children and teachers.
The art was first done as small sketches on tracing paper then enlarged onto illustration board. Next Husband used pen and black India ink, color was added in Photoshop over an aged paper background.
The illustrations are detailed using a limited, muted palette.
I'll use this with Kindergarten and older students. Probably a Kindergarten late in the year so they're not so squirrelly.
