    Rosa, Review

    Rosa is about a young black woman that worked hard every day. One day she got to leave work early, and when she got on the bus to go home she sat in the neutral section. More people got on the bus, and the bus drive wanted her to give her seat to a white person. Rosa refused to give up her seat, and she was arrested. Rosa did not give up her seat because she was tired to the segregation that the blacks had to undergo. After hearing of Rosa¿s arrest, twenty-five black women gathered at Alabama State to come up with a way to support Rosa. Along with their support, Martin Luther King, Jr. became involved to help support Rosa.

    Rosa in truth for children

    This is a great book for young children to learn the story of Rosa Parks. The illustrations are full of expression, and put things into perspective for young readers. Every child needs to hear this story, and this book tells it in truth with relativity to a younger ear.

    Rosa-Montgomery Bus Boycott's

    Rosa was a wonderful story that is based on actual history. I would recommend this book to any parent of possibly third or fourth grade students that would like to learn more about the Montgomery, Ala. bus boycott. It is an interesting story that tells the courage of one woman's fight against discrimination. The story is told in a kid friendly version, while not losing its truth. This story is good to read to children to help them become more compassionate about the awful injustices that we sometimes face. As a teacher, I would probably chose this book as one to read during Black History Month, along with other literature regarding Rosa Parks and the Montgomery, Ala. Bus Boycotts. The illustrators work was also fabulous. The colors and realism of the drawings brought the book to life.

    Rosa

    Caldecott, This book is about a courageous woman that made a change. An American civil rights book that is easy for children to understand that ¿separate¿ was ¿not equal¿. Fifty years after her refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus, Mrs. Rosa Parks is still one of the most important figures in the American civil rights movement. This picture book is a tribute to Mrs. Parks is a celebration of her courageous action and the events that followed. Nikki Giovanni was born Yolande Cornelia Giovanni, Jr. in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1943. She attended Fisk University where she received her degree in 1967. She now works as a professor in the English department of Virginia Polytechnical Institute. Bibliography Giovanni, Nikki. Rosa. New York: Scholastic, 2006.
