Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
This book is from "Pull Ahead Books-Biographies" series. Emerging Spanish readers will learn about Rosa Parks and the important role she played in the United States during segregation. The vocabulary is in bold type for readers, and at the end of the book a glossary is provided with the definitions. The actual photographs of these American historical events lend to the credibility of this book. A chronological timeline on Rosa Parks' life is provided for readers at the end of the book, as well as additional information, Web sites, and an index. This text is an excellent introduction to segregation and Civil Rights in the United States for young readers. Educators can use the vocabulary prior to reading the book to help introduce and activate background knowledge of the historical events. Moreover, Rosa Parks's life is simply told from the unfolding of events in which she refused to give up her seat after a long day at work to the Supreme Court's ruling on segregation.
