I've read quite a few books about Little Rock and the Little Rock Nine, but I thought this one was especially unique in that it shows how one photograph made such a difference. This may be a bit surprising to today's kids, who are used to immediate photos, videos, and news from any part of the world. That may be part of the charm - not only realizing the importance of photos, but also learning about how people got news in earlier times.
