    " In Rosa every child reader will be able to identify with Rosa. The part of the story before the incident on the bus portrays Rosa as a normal person living a common life. Rosa is doing the things that the reader sees his or her mother do at home. She takes care of her family and works for a living. The illustrations also paint a picture of a character that the reader can identify with. Examples of this are the illustration of Rosa in her ordinary kitchen and the one of her at her workplace. In this second illustration Rosa is making eye contact with the reader, thus establishing a connection with him or her. The reader will realize that Rosa was an ordinary person who had the courage to do an extraordinary thing. "

    " This is a wonderful picture book! Along with the great illustrations it has a great story. It goes through the story of Rosa Parks. It doesn't tell you about her whole life but takes you through what she went through the day she decided not to give up her seat for a white man. Very inspirational, and personally showed me that we need to be greatful for this amazing woman and that things are not the way they were because of her! "

    " Collier's collages are beautiful. I like the perspective of this book - Rosa as unintentional hero - makes her more real, less mythic, more relatable. "

    " I like the story and illustrations. I especially like how the women who knew her organized themselves in her support! "
