Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is part of the series "Gente Que Hay Que Conocer." Many students have heard about Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a public bus. In this book they will learn that she worked with the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). The text is appropriate for third-through-fifth grade students. Because the book is organized into chapters and subchapters, students are able to use it for school reports. The sidebars, photos, and captions enhance the text and explain what was happening at the time. Chapter 1: "Little Black Girl"—tells about Rosa's childhood while explaining what segregation means. Chapter 2: "Married Woman"— Rosa meets and later marries Raymond Parks. This chapter also explains Rosa's work with the NAACP, in the subchapter "Finding Her Spirit." Chapter 3: "Lawbreaker"—Rosa takes a stand by sitting, on a bus on December 1, 1955, and refusing to give the seat to a white man. Chapter 4: "A Brave Woman"—the reader learns about the bus boycott and Rosa's court case. At the end of the book there are lists of books and websites for more information about Rosa Parks. A glossary is provided and words that appear in it are also printed in boldface type the first time they occur in the Spanish text. 2006, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 8 to 10.
