Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A sensitive take on a painful topic, this civil rights story unfolds with a gentleness that also acknowledges the real hurt caused by marriage inequality. The Case for Loving: The Fight for Interracial Marriage speaks to young readers in clear language that lets young readers discover their own emotions and thoughts on the topic of racism and marriage inequality while not shying away from the pain and injustice in the not-too-recent past. The soft illustrations have a seriousness that perfectly fit the topic, and the Author's Notes at the end of the book are helpful and thought-provoking.
