Robert Coles wrote a very powerful and true story at that! Ruby Bridges and her family are quite a family. Ruby is a beyond brilliant and strong girl. I truly love this story and the message it sends. I don't know how it was during that time, but can only imagine what it would be like to be in Ruby's shoes. Ruby's strength and power is outstanding and I wish I was more like her. I would totally read this book to a group of children and think they would enjoy it too. The pictures by George Ford are outstanding as well and capture the time very well. Very powerful and wonderful read!
