The story of Rosa Parks is filled with conflict but a very important story for all to know. The book made me feel interested in learning more about her.

I love this look at the life of Rosa Parks. Her inspiring story is shared in an interesting way that makes you feel like you, too, can stand for what’s right and make a difference. The book makes you want to continue reading about her in the extra information at the end of the book. I also appreciate that the book isn’t too long for younger readers. The illustrations are also darling.
