Nonfiction Monday

Picture Book of the Day

Rosa’s Bus
by Jo S. Kittinger (Author) and Steven Walker (Illustrator)

Booktalk: Like all buses in Montgomery, Alabama, in the 1950s, bus #2857 was segregated: white passengers sat in the front and black passengers sat in the back. Bus #2857 was an ordinary public bus until a woman named Rosa Parks, who had just put in a long day as a seamstress, refused to give up her seat to a white passenger.

Snippet:
When Bus #2857 rolled off
the assembly line in 1948,
no one cheered,
no one paid attention
no one knew that one day
Bus #2857 would be famous.
