Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "First Biographies" series, this book is designed for the beginner reader. Its text is very simple, relating facts in a very broad and general manner. A progressive timeline accompanies every page allowing the reader to easily understand the chronology of information and events. Full-page photographs are abundant with simple captions of explanation. Additionally, it has a table of contents, glossary, bibliography, index and related web sites section. A beginner reader will enjoy learning historical information about Rosa Parks in this no nonsense and non-intimidating book. It is a good choice for any classroom's "beginner reader" section. 2002, Capstone Press,
