Who Was Rosa Parks? (Who Was...?) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"We can all be heroes" is the message entertainingly told in this picture-book biography series from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Brad Meltzer.

“Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it,” Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography – for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of Americas icons in a vivacious, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who arent quite ready for the Who Was biography series. Each book focuses on a particular character trait that made that role model heroic. For example, Rosa Parks dared to stand up for herself and other African Americans by staying seated, and as a result she helped end public bus segregation and launch the countrys Civil Rights Movement.

 

This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American history to life for young children, providing them with the right role models, supplementing Common Core learning in the classroom, and best of all, inspiring them to strive and dream.

Synopsis:

Susan B. Anthony may be an international icon but her campaign for womens rights had personal roots. Working as a school teacher in New York, Anthony refused to settle for less pay than her male colleagues which ignited her lifelong devotion to womens equality. Anthony toured the United States and Europe giving speeches and publishing articles as one of the most important advocates of womens rights. Learn more about the woman behind the movement in Who Was Susan B. Anthony?

Synopsis:

In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama. This seemingly small act triggered civil rights protests across America and earned Rosa Parks the title ÒMother of the Civil Rights Movement.Ó This biography has blackand- white illustrations throughout.
