Rosa Parks (Little People Big Dreams) by Lisbeth Kaiser & Marta Antelo


In the Little People Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists.  All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream.  This book follows Rosa Parks, 'The Mother of the Freedom Movement', in this inspiring true story.  Rosa Parks was an inspiring civil rights activist who 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.  This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the activist's life.  This empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world.  These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!
