Take a Stand Rosa ParksTake a Stand Rosa Parks: 03/31/08

Take a Stand, Rosa Parks! by Peter and Connie Roop. It is one in a series of chapter book biographies the Roops have done for Scholastic.

Rosa Parks is best known for her refusal to give up her seat on James Blake's bus. Take a Stand explains the circumstances of Rosa's life that lead her to take on James Blake.

Although the book is written for elementary school readers it is written well enough to hold an adult's attention too. The book is also illustrated. While 59 pages isn't long enough to fully understand Rosa Parks, it is a good introduction to this remarkable woman and the role she played in the Civil Rights movement.

It's a good introduction to Rosa Parks for young readers. The same pair of authors have written a number of these grade school biographies."
