Rosa Parks Feb 1, 2007
This is a wonderful book for children. It teaches them about segregation, and about being brave and standing up for your ideas. Great story...Too bad it was true.
a book that captures the history of the civil rights era Oct 29, 2006
This book was well received by our 6 yr old granddaughter. It is a book that can be read with a youngster. It captures the spirit of Rosa Parks in easily understood language.

This book is a great read for a young child...maybe K-2nd grade. It was good at laying out for the reader the life of Rosa Parks.
Next to Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks is remembered! Aug 3, 2002
Rosa Parks is best remembered as the Black woman who refused to give up her seat on a bus to a White person. However, she was much more that that. She was raised by grandparents because her mother taught school in another city. Her grandfather was the child of a slave owner and a slave. Rosa was determined to make a difference for her people. She and her husband took part in supporting the Scottsboro boys, Black youth who were accused of crimes they did not commit. Rosa became secretary of the NAACP and contributed greatly to her people, eventually receiving the Congressional Gold Metal award.
I AM ROSA PARKS Mar 27, 2000
This book is about a girl that had to give her seat up in a bus for a white person. She did not get up so they called the police.The police arrested her for not getting up.Then when Rosa got out of jail she made a statement saying, " Why do black people have to give up for white people?" They compromised and the black people do not have to give up there seat anymore. I liked this story because if Rosa Parks did not say anything we will be still separated from black people.
