ALA Booklist
In the Stories of the Civil Rights Movement series, each volume focuses on a pivotal event and targets a younger audience than most books on the subject. Illustrated with many well-chosen photos, the presentations include a number of fact-filled sidebars, including a one-page feature called "Straight to the Source," offering passages from primary source documents and posing textbook-like questions designed to help students engage with the source material. The Little Rock Nine offers part of a telegram the nine African American students' parents sent to President Eisenhower, thanking him for sending federal troops to protect their children's rights. Although kids unfamiliar with the era may find some terms in the books confusing, the series offers good introductions to some important milestones in the American civil rights movement.
