Children's Literature
Civil Rights leader and educator Mary McLeod Bethune is brought to life in this short, informative, easy-to-read "Rookie Biography." Bethune devoted her life to women's rights and opened a school for African American girls in Daytona, Florida, and later was the first president of Bethune-Cookman College. Black and white photographs plus two colored photos show Bethune in various ceremonial appearances but adult readers will note the many equally famous people posing with her. The archival photos of early schools for African-Americans are especially worth study. "Words You Know" comprises a picture glossary which reminds readers of four highlights of Bethune's life, as well. An index is included. 2004, Scholastic/Children's Press, Ages 4 to 8.
