Washington Irving Washington Irving was the first American author who found success both in Europe and in America. Washington Irving was born April 3, 1783. A unique trait of Irving’s writing is the American pull to it. His tales take place in an American environment, generally the Dutch settlements surrounding the Hudson, and they also present common American characters. This was unique in a world where there was generally some great conflict thrusting at the Herculean protagonist.

Janie is not exactly sure why her daddy is riding a bus from Indianapolis to Washington, D.C. She knows why she has to go-to stay out of her mother's way, especially with the twins now teething. But Daddy wants to hear a man named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak and, to keep out of trouble, Janie is sent along. Riding the bus with them is a mishmash of people, black and white, young and old. They seem very different from Janie. As the bus travels across cities and farm fields to its historic destination, Janie sees firsthand the injustices that many others are made to endure. She begins to realize that she's not so different from the other riders and that, as young as she is, her actions can affect change.Though fiction, Riding to Washington is a very personal story for Gwenyth Swain as both her father and grandfather rode to Washington, D.C., to participate in the 1963 civil rights march on the nation's capital.

This books does a good job showing different perspectives of the erra in a way that is honest, yet not harsh.

Gwenyth Swain's new picture book "Riding to Washington" (isbn #1585363247) is for ages 4 - UP THROUGH ADULTS. It is a poignant and colorful nudge to my memory of that time - 45 years ago - when the author's father and my father and our local pastor went by bus from Indianapolis to be part of Martin Luther King's MARCH ON WASHINGTON.

Swain's story is one often categorized nowadays as "a slice of Life" - a 'slim' story some will say, but that makes the impact greater. Perceptive teachers can share this in a setting where discussion is encouraged. Upper primary students are often reluctant to select large-format books but do respond to the spoken word when the voice is expressive and entertaining.

Sometimes just one 'leading question' about Dr. King, or how CHANGE is brought about, will provoke discussions that leave permanent imprints. If a teacher can preserve a moment in history for today's students the 'ripple effect' may result in actions that are truly lasting memorials on Martin Luther King Day.

Congratulations to David Geister who has painted a beautiful and very convincing portrait of 1963. Thank you, Gwenyth Swain, for your compelling tale from those momentous times. Also helpful is a follow-up article in the April 2008 issue of "Cobblestone" magazine.

"Riding to Washington" is one more very attractive book from Michigan's Sleeping Bear Press, who publish another favorite, "Legend of the Petoskey Stone" (isbn # 1585362174). Reviewer mcHaiku suggests you take a thoughtful Ride to Washington, and then stretch your brain(s) by following the enticing links on the author's web page.

Gweneth Swain's Riding to Washington is a good book.

As historical fiction, this book establishes the setting very well. The scene is set in Washington during Martin Luther King Jr's treasured speech.

Two major themes in the book are rascism and civil rights activism. You should read this book because it tells and shows everthing that happened like for instance when they arrived to Washington, D.C, they described what it looked like. She said it was a very big field and there were alot of busses everywhere. It was very crowded. I also think you should read this boook because it tells how people were treating African Americans. If it was not for Martin Luther King Jr's treasured speech life would not be the same as it is today.

As one who rode a bus hundreds of miles to participate in the civil rights March on Washington, I find that children's author Gwenyth Swain captures the mood of the day as I remember it.

Swain takes us on the journey as seen through the eyes of a young girl not yet old enough to fully understand the purpose of the long journey from a small Midwestern town to the nation's capital.

Small incidents along the way remind us that we have moved a long way from the rigid constraints of racial segregation that held both races in communal bondage for much too long a time.
T
he book also shows how our children absorb the actions of their parents. The special events of our childhood affect the rest of our lives. If we expect our children to be an improvement on ourselves we must set the path for them.

Artist David Geister beautifully and accurately captures both the trials of the journey and the mood of times and especially the day. Young readers will benefit from this accurate portrayal of this young girl's journey in which she became a participant in a significant moment of change in the history of our country. It is a journey none of us should forget.

Gwenyth Swain's "Riding To Washington" shows a great deal of emotion of how the author feels about what is in the book such as segregation, Martin Luthor King Jr's speech, and friendship. This book is about when a father and his daughter have the honor of going to Washington D.C. to see Martin Luthor King Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech with a couple of his work friends. While they are there they learned the values of how all people should be treated equally. This book teaches good life lessons and creates joyful feelings. I really enjoyed the book!!
Great!
