Read 4 times. Last read January 18, 2010.

I use this book every year to introduce my Civil Rights teaching unit. When I get to the last page of the book, I always cry. She says, "Someday, somebody's gonna come along and knock this fence down." I always close the book and say, "Tomorrow, we'll start to learn about a man, a woman, and a child who helped knock down fences just like this one." And as I speak, I hold up My Brother Martin, Martin's Big Words, If a Bus Could Talk, and The Story of Ruby Bridges.
