They wanted to give every girl a voice. They had no idea they'd make so much noise. 4 Girls is created from the very best thoughts, ideas and dreams of four girls. But when Miko has to take a step back from the magazine again, Paulina, Tally and Ivy decide to run a contest for one lucky student to have his or her work featured on the cover. Miko will help them judge the entries, along with a new faculty advisor who seems to want to steer the girls in a new direction. Can these four girls keep their one vision in sight, or is it time to strike out on their own?
A Taste of Freedom
Gandhi and the Great Salt March
No one ever forgets their first taste of freedom. Gandhi's famous Salt March shook the foundations of the British Empire and the world, showing the strength of a people united in peace to fight for freedom. Gandhi's march had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes towards Indian independence, and inspired the use of non-violence in other protest movements, like the US Civil Right movement. You’ll never forget Elizabeth Cody Kimmel’s heartwarming, insightful account or Guiliano Ferri’s stunning illustrations of the event seen through the eyes of a child inspired by Gandhi's vision for a better world.
