Picture Book of Rosa Parks, A

by David Adler


Quick Overview

Adler presents a visual biography of the woman who famously refused to give up her seat on a bus and helped establish the civil rights movement.


Adler presents a biographical account of the longtime and committed civil-rights activist, whose role in initiating the Montgomery bus boycott was but one aspect. He also brings in other issues, such as school desegregation and the presence of the Ku Klux Klan. While these inclusions diffuse his focus, they also give young readers background on the time and the movement in which she participated. Brief notes offer additional information about Tuskeegee Institute, located near Parks's birthplace, and Thurgood Marshall, who successfully argued the Brown v. Board of Education desegregation case before the Supreme Court. Size 0.18" H x 7.97" L x 9.48" W, 30 pages
