Some teachers are using age-appropriate books to help explain the strike to their children. Kirti Baranwal is a teacher at UCLA Community School in Koreatown, where her daughter Sonali Martinez-Baranwal, 7, is in second grade. Baranwal said she planned to sit down with Sonali and re-read “Click, Clack, Moo” — about cows who stop giving milk until they get electric blankets — as well as “Side by Side,” about Dolores Huerta, Cesar Chavez and the fight for farmworkers’ rights. She said they would also read “Sí Se Puede,” the story of a janitors strike from the perspective of a boy whose mother is striking.
