In this installment of the ValueTales series, Ann Donegan Johnson teaches about conviction with examples from the life of Cesar Chavez (). The book tells about Cesar's childhood, when his family couldn't afford to run their farm and moved from place to place picking vegetables for other farmers. Some of these farmers were kind, but many did not treat their workers well. The workers were not paid much and had to live in poorly-built shacks. When Cesar grew up, he helped farm workers to get better pay and working conditions. Like other books in the ValueTales series, this book uses a real-life person to exemplify an important value. It is suitable for reading by children in the later elementary school grades. A "Historical Facts" section at the book's end summarizes Chavez's life in a single-page bio form suitable for adults.
