The Rosa Parks story is a powerful one. This story, retold by Nikki Giovanni, is a well done work of art. Brian Collier has remarkable talent as he illustrated each page with attention to detail in facial expressions and the colors which reflected the moods of those events. While I am not stating this is a remarkable book, I do find that the writing and illustrations work well together to create literature which tells an important story that changed the lives of African Americans and the civil rights in America.
Curriculum: Excellent book to introduce, an/or expand, on Rosa Parks and the early struggles for civil rights to younger students.
