Starred Review. Grade 3–6—Through effectively chosen words, Andrea Pinkney brings understanding and meaning to what four black college students accomplished on February 1, 1960, by sitting down at a Woolworth lunch counter in Greensboro, NC. Her repeated phrase, "Their order was simple. A doughnut and coffee with cream on the side," along with other food metaphors, effectively emphasizes the men's determination to undo the injustices of segregation in a peaceful protest, which eventually led up to the 1966 Supreme Court ruling against racial discrimination. With swirling swabs of color that masterfully intertwine with sometimes thin, sometimes thick lines, Brian Pinkney cleverly centers the action and brings immediacy to the pages. Both the words and the art offer many opportunities for discussion. The book concludes with a civil rights time line and an update on the aftermath of the lunch-counter struggle.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

From Booklist
*Starred Review* This compelling picture book is based on the historic sit-in 50 years ago by four college students who tried to integrate a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina. Food-related wordplay adds layers to the free verse, as in the lines about the protesters’ recipe for integration: “Combine black with white / to make sweet justice.” The double-page spreads in watercolor and thick ink lines show both the scene in Woolworth’s and across America as blacks and whites organize sit-ins and watch coverage of protests on TV. Finally, the young people at the counter get what they order, “served to them exactly the way they wanted it––well done.” The recipe metaphors are repetitive, but at the core of the exciting narrative are scenes that show the difficulty of facing hatred: “tougher than any school test.” Closing pages discuss the role of adults, including Ella Baker and then presidents Kennedy and Johnson, and include a detailed civil rights time line, “a final helping” about the historic struggle, and a bibliography. Even young children will grasp the powerful, elemental, and historic story of those who stood up to oppressive authority and changed the world. Grades 2-4. --Hazel Rochman

With poetic, powerful prose this is the story of four young men, who followed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s words of peaceful protest and dared to sit at the "whites only" Woolworth's lunch counter. From that central story, the author expands the readers awareness more broadly into the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

This book is about 4 friends sitting at a table in just a white restaurant shop on February 1, 1960 were they didn't need menus. There order was simple just a donut and coffee, with cream on the side. The servers wouldn't serve them because of their color. This basically showing the momentous Woolworth's lunch counter sit-in, when four college students staged a peaceful protest that became a defining moment in the struggle for racial equality and the growing of the civil rights movement. This book is good to have in your classroom because it teaches about racism and how it was back then. Students should know what it was like back then compared to what it is now because we wouldn't all be free if it was for all these events happening and this was part of the movement. ( )

This book is about the true story of a sit-in at a restaurant by four college students in the south in the 1960’s. The story begins describing why and how the initial sit in began and how the actions of these four students helped end segregation and resulted in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. While I had learned about all the sit-in’s when I was younger, this book was a nice refresher for me or history lesson for those who don’t know much about this topic. One thing I really liked about this book was how it flows – in a lot of parts it felt like a poem by the way the words flow and the use of rhyming. ( )

This is a really great book. It gives a nice kind of summary of the sit in protests, how they grew, and the effects. I love that the author made a pattern out of saying what food they wanted. It emphasizes that all they wanted was to be treated equal with a meal so simple. This book would be great fo0r children because it has simple language and shows that violence isn't necessary. I also love that there's a timeline in the back of the book to give students more information. ( )
