  School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These brief biographies present basic information on the life and accomplishments of these two women along with some anecdotal material that adds color to the texts. Each spread has a full-page photograph or reproduction facing a page of large-print, easy-to-read text. Quotes from the subjects are highlighted in boxes, but the language might be difficult for youngsters to read on their own. There is little else on Clara Barton for this reading level. Rosa Parks and Jim Haskins's I Am Rosa Parks (Dial, 1997) presents the same material as Dubois, as does David A. Adler's A Picture Book of Rosa Parks (Holiday, 1993). The format of these series entries will appeal to elementary students and there is adequate information for reports.-Marlene Gawron, formerly at Orange County Library, Orlando, FL (c) Copyright 2010.

A biography of Rosa Parks, a courageous African American woman who greatly impacted the civil rights movement in the United States by refusing to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man.
