Little People, Big Dreams: Rosa Parks Frances Lincoln Childrens Books/Quarto Group
The Little People, Big Dreams series is about creative, famous, and outstanding people that have achieved high credibility in their lives but all have one thing in common: they were once little children with a dream!
Rosa Parks grew up during segregation in Alabama, but she was taught to respect herself and stand up for her rights. In 1955, Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Her decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport. Rosa was described as “the mother of the freedom movement”. This inspiring story of Rosa’s life is moving, and approachable for young readers.
This little biography makes a great addition to any bookshelf and the illustrations are both quirky and unique.
