Picture Book Biography series: Illustrated by Robert Casilla
Annotation:
In 1955, an African-American woman named Rosa Parks changed history when she defied the segregationist "Jim Crow" laws of the times by refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. Her action is widely cited as the beginning of the American civil rights movement. This introductory biography explores Parks's life both before and after that historic event. Illustrated with watercolor paintings.
Author Bio
David A. Adler
Perhaps best-known for his picture-book biographies and his series of books about 10-year-old girl detective Cam Jansen, David A. Adler is the author of over 200 books for children. Before turning to writing as a full-time career, he worked as a math teacher. Adler was inspired by a conversation with one of his nephews to write his first children's book, A LITTLE AT A TIME, which was published in 1976.
