Nikki Giovanni (A) and Bryan Collier (ILT)

List Price: $7.99 (Paperback - Civil Rights Leader – 2007)

Ashay’s Price: $7.99

Description: Fifty years after her refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, city bus, Mrs. Rosa Parks is still one of the most important figures in the American civil rights movement. This tribute to Mrs. Parks is a celebration of her courageous action and the events that followed.

She had not sought this moment but she was ready for it. When the policeman bent down to ask “Auntie, are you going to move?” all the strength of all the people through all those many years joined in her. She said, “No.”

Award-winning poet, writer, and activist Nikki Giovanni’s evocative text combines with Bryan Collier’s striking cut-paper images to retell the story of this historic event from a wholly unique and original perspective. (40 pgs) Ages 4 +

Ashay says, "Now I know I had this book in my collection before.  hmmm ...  Get your hands off and give Rosa Parks the credit she is due.  She was a trail blazer who became a symbol for freedom and justice and her courage sparked a revolution. A Caldecott Honor Award winning book and a must have for the library and classroom. Teach!
