I am the mother of four adopted African children and always looking for good role models for them. Since it is hard to find books for children in Spanish about black people that have done great things I buy them in UK. This is a great collection of books with some black people that have an impressive life full of courage and hard work. Far from the mostly bad role model presented on TV shows. It gives my children a great push to be who they want to be.
There are a lot of books in Spanish abut adoption, children's stories about multiculturalism, etc... But I just wanted biographies of real black heroes! This one in particular is perfect since it is about a black woman! It is even harder to find good role models for girls nowadays regardless their ethnic group, TV is getting more and more degrading towards women.

Now this book is an inspiration to me, because Rosa changed the course of history, everytime I get on a bus I remember what she did. I dont have to get up when a white person gets on the bus and I can sit anywhere that i want.. Also its a role model for the young black youth today to show them that they can achieve anything with a little encouragement.

America has Barack Obama who is the president of the USA. imagine a BLACK MAN as president, this is history in its making.

And I think its one of the best books I have read for along time.

My 7 year old didn't put this book down and asked hundreds of questions after reading it, it's very educational and well written and ideal for your children to learn.
