Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "African-American Biography Library" series, this is an excellent biographical account for young readers of one of the major historical figures of America's Civil Rights Movement. Rosa Parks is best known for her staunch refusal to move from her seat on a segregated city bus in Alabama, which led to her arrest. But risking arrest was just one of many brave actions in the life of a woman who was tired of the unfair and unequal treatment of African-Americans. Rosa Parks was a soft-spoken, intelligent woman who worked along with her husband, Raymond Parks, to fight for equality, freedom, and justice. Both were active members of the NAACP. After Rosa Parks' arrest, she agreed to let her case be made a test case for the constitutionality of the segregation of city buses. Young Martin Luther King, Jr. helped lead the fight for more fair and equal treatment on city buses. Rosa Parks continued to live her life committed to the cause of furthering civil rights issues. This book would be a great resource for lessons on the Civil Rights Movement or for simply learning the interesting story of an influential American woman. 2005, Enslow Publishers, Ages 8 up.

Gr 4-8-While not particularly distinguished from other series' entries on Parks, this is a logical, respectful, and respectable biography of the civil rights icon. The title quickly yet broadly covers Parks from her birth to the current day, and readers can clearly see the developments that led her to take a stand by refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery in 1955. That pivotal moment in her life (and, as it would turn out, in American history) understandably provides the most drama and information in the book. Details of what she bought at the store just before boarding the bus and documented dialogue between her and the bus driver and police shed interesting light on a moment in time. Large and clear photographs are plentiful, and all aspects of this amazing woman's story are integrated well into the context of her place and time. Of course, for the story straight from the source, students should also be directed to Park's powerfully moving autobiography, Rosa Parks: My Story (Dial, 1992). Schraff's work is an appropriate addition to general collections.-Andrew Medlar, Chicago Public Library, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
