I was so interested in reading this book after having experienced the simulation of the sit-in at the Civil Rights Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. This biographical picture book is a well-synthesized and appropriate elementary-aged text. The opening line is written in a huge, teal-colored font: "We must...meet hate with love," Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This quote is followed with the story of four college students walking into a Woolworth's and sitting at the lunch counter on Feb. 1, 1960 in Greensboro, NC. They did so despite signs that said "Whites Only." David, Joseph, Franklin and Ezell ordered doughnuts and coffee with cream on the side. Though they sat for hours, they never received any food or drink; the waitress told them the counter and food was for whites only. More students arrived the next day to join the sit-in. In the midst of the narrative-style biography, Dr. King was quoted again. "Be loving enough to absorb evil." Despite it being difficult, the students continued to sit peacefully. They were verbally assaulted; food and drinks were thrown and dumped on them. And still they sat. The police eventually arrived and arrested them for "loafing." They were taken to jail. The story then moves to Ella Baker and her work organizing a student leadership conference and the SNCC at Shaw University. At the end of the book, the author dedicated two pages to "Civil Rights Timeline," complete with factual details and circular photos for several dates. The final page of the book includes a "recipe for integration," complete with 10 steps on a foldout page, and how President John F. Kennedy "stepped in" to urge Americans treat on another fairly. I enjoyed this book. It's a large-sized picture book. The husband-wife team of illustrator and writer have a powerful book that teaches about a dark time in our history. They've presented it in a narrative style that is engaging and inspiring.

This poetically written and beautifully illustrated book tells how the simple, brave, non-violent actions of four young college students changed America. Interspersed throughout the text are lines from the writings and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The colorful, imaginative illustrations will grab the interest of children. Civil Rights Timeline, Additional Notes.

"Sit In" is about the lunch counter sit-in demonstrations in the 1960's. It is beautifully told in prose with unique and eye catching illustrations. It features quotes throughout the book by Dr. Martin Luther King, as well as a civil rights timeline in the back of the book. This is a powerful book that could be shared with students of almost any age group and would facilitate great conversations.

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.
