Back of the Bus By Aaron Reynolds

Back of Book:
A boy and his mother are riding the bus in Montgomery, Alabama like any other day—way in the back of the bus. The boy passes time by watching his marble roll up and down the aisle with the motion of the bus…

Until a big commotion breaks out from way up front.
My Review:
This book gives a new and different perspective of the day that Rosa Parks changed history. It is told through the eyes of a little boy who was sitting in the back of the bus. Told in a first-person narrative, the boy on the bus shares his perspective on Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat. This is a great story to teach children perspective and different points of view. The illustrations are beautiful and show readers what happened that day all through the eyes of the little boy. This is a perfect addition to any Civil Rights, or Black History Month unit.
