In this exciting new series Little People Big Dreams, children will discover the lives of outstanding women who made a big difference in just about every field; 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.
The book follows Rosa Parks, who 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. Rosa has been described as The Mother of the Freedom Movement; this inspiring story of her life features facts and photos.
