Review: A wonderful book about a wonderful and inspiring woman.

Everyone knows Rosa Parks and if you don’t then get learning, this woman was brave, incredible and stood up or rather sat down against the injustice that she and others were being given.

She is someone that everyone needs to know and this is a great start for teaching children about her. I still wish the book was a bit longer and held more detail. However I really did enjoy reading about this courageous woman and I adore this series of books about powerful and inspiring woman.
