Acclaimed artist Bryan Collier depicts his subject with stunning watercolor and collage illustrations, balancing glorious recreations of stained glass windows with some of the more somber images of peace marchers and the famous bus that pitched Rosa Parks into the civil rights movement. A brief chronology and bibliography provide additional resources for readers. Here is an exquisite tribute to a world hero. (Ages 4 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

All of sudden, the beauty of the drawings and the words took on a new meaning -- this is a book that paints the Civil Rights movement as one of the black people, by the black people and for the black people. The true strength of the movement came from the participation, sacrifice, and yes deaths, of men, women and children of all races and creeds. And if a 3-year-old notices it, something must be wrong.
Is this book a wonderful idea -- yes. Does it paint an accurate picture of the Civil Rights Movement -- no. Are these complaints too subtle -- absolutely not. The devil, my friends, is in the details!
Now I want to buy a copy for every kid (and adult) I know.
