"We women are fortunate enough to scan the generations and discover women who dared to be 'sheroes' and role models for girls and young women. Madame Curie, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Mrs Rosa Parks have brightened our days and influenced our thoughts. Because of their courage and insight, we have come to believe we can be the best and deserve the best" (Maya Angelou). A highly accessible, non-fiction chapter book with a single colour blue palette, a text spread out into accessible blocks, fact boxes, powerful large-font quotes, on-the-page glossary boxes and an 8-page, illustrated timeline. Provides an excellent and refreshingly direct biography of Rosa Parks work. 'A welcome book about the life of Rosa Parks, a wonderful role model for all. It's a very informative look at her life but very easy to read as each page contains a small amount of text' (Eileen, Former Primary Teacher, Letterbox Library reviewer). Favourite fact: when the Ku Klux Klan offered to help Missouri council fund a new motorway, the council took the cash and then named that part of the motorway the 'Rosa Parks Highway!'
