Listener Opinions

    " 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! "

    " a good story to read to children, talks about prejudism, and the streaght of human character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Evans | 1/6/2014

    " This picture book is very lengthy, so it would not be great for emerging readers. However, it talks a lot about Rosa Parks' life and the way she changed our country. This would be used to discuss with the student what they would stand up for like Rosa. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C | 1/5/2014

    " This book was about a woman in Montgomery, Alabama who got on a normal bus on a normal day. Then, she made it unnormal by refusing to give up her seat to a white person. It was awesome because it was a woman standing up for her color, instead of a man standing up. She was a black woman, too. Every person should be equal. "

    " A fantastic biography for emerging readers on the courageous story of Rosa Parks. I learned new information I did not know before hand, somethign rare for this type of biography. Stunning visual art also does a lot for the story and the overall message cannot be missed. "

    " Beautifully illustrated, in my opinion this should have won the medal for that year. This book is about Rosa Parks's personal story in her battle for civil rights. I would use this book during black history month to teach about this amazing women who changed our history. "

    " A great non fiction picture book that details the events before Mrs. Parks said "no." Great mentor text for narrative non fiction. "

    " This book talks about the events surrounding Rosa Parks' choice to stick up for her rights. It also talks about other events that took place to makes sure that segregation was abolished through and through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Hermes | 11/6/2012

    " Although many people are familiar with the story of Rosa parks, this book is worth reading for the illustrations alone. It was also a really good book because it can be compared to other literary pieces about Rosa Parks. It was interesting to hear the story from Rosa's perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Kays | 4/12/2012

    " This is a historical book that takes a look at Rosa Parks the events occurring when she refused to give up her seat. This is a great tool for older elementary students to get a chance to look at the past through illustrations and get a better understand of what it was like for Rosa Parks. "
