Rosa - Nikki Giovanni, Bryan Collier

This was a very interesting book. It kept my attention with the details and the vocabulary was very appropriate for students. It is a great source for the story about Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. This book paints a picture of how Rosa's Park's day went from a normal December afternoon, to a monumental day! It tells more than a history book as it dives into Rosa's thoughts and how her close friends reacted to her arrest. This would be a great source for a unit on the Civil Rights Movement. I would read this book in a 4th or 5th grade classroom.
