IF A BUS COULD TALK: The Story of Rosa Parks

Faith Ringgold, Author . S&S/Aladdin $6.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-689-85676-1

A contemporary schoolgirl boards the bus on which Rosa Parks rode in 1955 when, refusing to give up her seat to a white man, she helped trigger the Montgomery Bus Boycott; and it speaks. "Ringgold's paintings help animate this uneven tale, but a depiction of the bus with facial features, hair and hat compromises her powerful folk-art style," wrote PW. Ages 5-9. (Jan.)
