Rosa Parks

by Erinn Banting

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is from the "Great African-American Women" series. It provides an over view of Rosa Parks' life. Rosa Parks grew up in Alabama where she worked very hard on her grandparent's farm. Her grandparents taught her the importance of education and to stand up for her rights. Rosa's parents, and later her husband, encouraged Rosa to further her education. Rosa's education instilled in her a belief that she could change the world by being an active citizen. She worked hard during the civil rights movement to change unfair laws. Throughout her life, Rosa stood up for her beliefs and fought for the equality of all people. Rosa has been given many awards and recognition for the differences she has made in the world. This biography would be useful when teaching about segregation, civil rights, citizenship, law making, and education. There are great photographs that accompany the text. The back of the book includes a time line of Rosa Parks' life, an activity for making a bill, and resources for further research. 2006, Weigl Publishers, Ages 8 to 16.
