Rosa Sat

Purchase
Yesterday was  Nelson Mandela International Day. Children (and adults) need inspiration from people like Nelson Mandela who  have done great things.  This book by Lucy Erber does just that.  Underpinned with the message of aspiring to achieve your goals in life, this delightful children's book tells the story of the Civil Rights movement in the United States in the 1950's and '60's, through to today.

In telling the story of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Barack Obama and others, the book explains that the struggle for equality has been long and hard, and continues today -but that much has been achieved by those who contributed so much- both politically, and on a personal level. The book is listed in the official  Black History Month Listings 2013 (UK) It is also highly recommended by Midwest Book Review

ROSA SAT
SO THAT MARTIN COULD WALK
SO OBAMA COULD RUN
SO OUR CHILDREN CAN FLY
YES, WE CAN

  1. I am so happy that I found this blog! We are a family living in the US and we are mixed. I am Swedish, my husband Guyanese and our daughter (plus baby due in September) is mixed. I have a hard time finding books and toys that represent us as a family, and your blog is really helpful.
    At the moment we are looking into buying a doll house for our daughter and I would like to have a mixed family doll set for example. I am still looking!
    Thank you so much for your time and enthusiasm!

    1. Hello, I am pleased that you like the blog. I haven't managed to find a mixed family dolls house set yet either. I don't think one exists. Let me know if you have any success.
