In the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding women from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. Beautifully illustrated and written I cannot recommend this inspirational series of books enough, for boys and girls.
This book in the series of Little People, Big Dreams tells of the incredible life of Rosa Parks, 'The Mother of the Freedom Movement'. In this true story of an inspiring civil rights activist, Rosa Parks grew up during segregation in Alabama, but she was taught to respect herself and stand up for her rights. In 1955, Rosa refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Her decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport
