The board book version of Rosa Parks is adapted from an international bestseller within the esteemed Little People, BIG DREAMS series. This book serves as a wonderful introduction for the youngest readers to the life of Rosa Parks, often referred to as the 'Mother of the Freedom Movement.'
Growing up in Alabama, Rosa Parks learned the importance of standing up for herself from an early age. Her journey led her to become a significant civil rights activist. In 1955, she made the courageous decision to refuse to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, an act that ignited the Montgomery Bus Boycott. This boycott marked a significant turning point in the civil rights movement, ultimately leading to the end of segregation on public transport. Rosa Parks never ceased her efforts to advocate for equal rights. This board book is designed to engage babies and toddlers, making it an ideal way to introduce them to the remarkable story of this iconic figure. The book also features stylish and unique illustrations to captivate young readers.
