Críticas An introduction to social justice through a framing device in which Nagara tells his son about a photograph from his wedding where he and his wife were arrested for protesting nuclear bombs. Nagara's story grows in scope to encompass different forms of protest from the civil rights movement to Black Lives Matter and expands beyond the United States to include stories of social activism from other countries including India and Colombia. Warm bright illustrations provide the text with a sense of urgency and the individuals portrayed in the images complement the diverse scope of Nagara's journey. The book veers away from didacticism by grounding its descriptions of various forms of protest with human touches (notably the central story of Nagara and his wife's arrest). The book also emphasizes the difference between simple disobedience (i.e. refusing to do your chores) and civil disobedience. By concluding the work with a description of his arrest Nagara taps into some of the challenges and risks associated with protest. The book ends on a note stressing the importance of community and collaboration and learning from each other. VERDICT An intriguing and timely purchase for young readers that provides a valuable introduction to social activism and protest. -School Library Journal The Wedding Portrait is strikingly simple and yet profound beautifully illustrated and that it is written for children is the best part about it. Bold and honest in its description of why sometimes we need to break the rules it reminds all of us in this political moment that it is this generation that is inheriting this world from us--and thus there is no better time to learn about how breaking the rules can change this country for the better. --Alicia Garza co-founder Black Lives Matter The Wedding Portrait couldn't be more timely. In today's world one of the most important things we can do for our children is teach them to stand up for their values even when that means breaking the rules. This charming and inspiring book is a valuable contribution to every kid's library - and to a more just future for all. --Annie Leonard Executive Director of Greenpeace USA The Wedding Portrait is full of inspiring stories about People Power across the globe that our children can relate to and celebrate. This story is a beautiful way to share hope that frontline communities who band together can fight off injustice but also create the world we want to live in. Direct Action gets the goods! --Sharon Lungo Director of the Ruckus Society Indigenous People's Power Project Reseña del editor The Wedding Portrait is an essential book for kids about standing up for what's right. Here are stories of direct action from around the world that are bookended by the author's wedding story. He and his bride led their wedding party to a  protest and were captured in a photo by the local newspaper kissing in front of a line of police just before being arrested. We usually follow the rules. But sometimes if you see something is wrong--more wrong than breaking the rules and by breaking the rules you might stop it--you may need to break the rules. When indigenous people in Colombia block an oil company from destroying their environment--this is a blockade; when Florida farmworkers encourage people not to buy their tomatos because the farm owners won't pay them for their hard work--this is called a boycott; and when Claudette Colvin takes a seat in the front of the bus to protest racism--this is called civil disobedience.  In brilliantly bright and inspiring illustrations we see ordinary people say No--to unfair treatment to war to destroying the environment. Innosanto Nagara has beautifully melded an act of love with crucial ideas of civil disobedience and direct action that will speak to young readers' sense of right and wrong. There has never been a more important moment for Innosanto Nagara's gentle message of firm resolve.
