If racial segregation was like a huge tight wall, the Little Rock Nine who challenged the segregation of public schools in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957 were successful in cracking the wall of bigotry, hatred, and white supremacy.

This is an appropriate introduction to the Little Rock Nine for upper elementary school students. There is a photo at the end of the book along with a note from the author and a brief timeline of events surrounding the year Central High 1st integrated.

This was a great book for 3rd-5th grade students. This would be idea to read for a history lesson, or black history month. The book had a great storyline and gave information about this event in history very well.
