The Harvey Milk Story

by Kari Krakow
Illustrated by David Gardner

Published by Two Lives Publishing, 2002
32 pages
ISBN: 096744683X

Ages 6 - 10

An unequivocal picture book biography of the gay rights leader strikes a fair balance between Harvey Milk's personal life and his political activism. Krakow's succinct text portrays Milk as a caring individual who worked to ensure the rights of all people who lived in the San Francisco community he represented as supervisor. The shocking assassination of Milk and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone by fellow supervisor Dan White is neither glossed over nor over-dramatized, and Krakow ends on an upbeat note by writing about Harvey Milk's legacy. Illustrated with cartoon-style drawings, the book is accompanied by excellent author notes and sources for further information. CCBC Categories: Biography and Autobiography.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
