2006 Caldecott Honor - Favorite Illustration: The detail of Rosa's hands holding the strap to her purse, and the accompanying page talking about the strength of the women before her.
This is a beautiful telling of the events leading to Rosa Park's famous refusal to give up her bus seat. I love the detail in the illustrations and while I don't necessarily love it, I like the note from the illustrator that talks about why he used the color tones that he did. I think this is a book for kids learning about the human rights movement, giving a lot of information without becoming too unwieldy or boring.

Most people don't understand why Rosa chose that day, that time, that cause, but this illustrates it beautifully in a way children and adults can understand.
