The Story of Ruby Bridges
The Story of Ruby Bridges, by written by Robert Cole and illustrated by George Ford, is an inspiring book to read, especially during Black History Month. Ruby's courage, as a six year old who goes to a segregated school, is told in a way that children can understand. This historical event is told so movingly with beautiful illustrations. We think this book can add much to a child's understanding of how our world has changed, and how one brave person can make a difference!
