A picture book simplifies acts of protest, reminding us that profound protests (essentially, expressed ideas) often are amplified acts that could appear to be quiet: sitting down, wearing a dress, sewing a flag.

“ENOUGH!- 20 Protestors Who Changed America” By, Emily Easton is a straightforward book that explains people who have made history to America. The author makes the book very simplistic and easy to understand for all ages. I believe this book is great for people who don’t quite know their history well and want a quick summary of famous activists that have changed history forever. Although I wished the book included more excitement for the readers. My favorite part of the book is how the author includes great illustrations of the actions that’ve been made a long time and how it includes the perfect amount of information about each activist without being overwhelmed with too many words.
