In this true story of an inspiring civil rights activist, Rosa Parks grew up during segregation in Alabama, but she was taught to respect herself and stand up for her rights. In 1955, Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Her decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport. With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. From designers and artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!
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.
