Children's Literature - Children's Literature
"The only tired I was, was tired of giving in." From segregated Pine Level, Alabama, to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the nation's capital, this short addition to the "Journey to Freedom: The African American Library" does a fine job of introducing the life, courage and accomplishments of an American icon, Rosa Parks. An appropriate mixture of facts and personal insights lifts this title above the common school-report nonfiction level. The book contains many touching sepia-toned vintage photographs that illustrate well the era of segregation as well as the times of change Ms. Parks helped advance. A timeline, glossary, index and information list add to the book's usefulness. 2000, Child's World, Ages 7 to 11, $24.21. Reviewer: Donna T. Brumby
