Superheroes Are Everywhere

Superheroes Are Everywhere by Kamala Harris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a children’s book that talks about finding superheroes everywhere in everyday people. I found that it is a child’s version of the author’s autobiography. It think it would keep a child’s interest. The pictures are great to follow while reading.

Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education by M. Michelle Derosier

Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education

Ruby Bridges: Get to Know the Girl Who Took a Stand for Education by M. Michelle Derosier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has a lot of information. The previous books I have read about Ruby Bridges were very basic. I am working on finding out more information and this book helped a lot, even though it was directed at children. I would recommend this one over the other books about the desegregation of schools and how Ruby Bridges handled herself in the process.

Ruby Bridges Goes To School: My True Story by Ruby Bridges

Ruby Bridges Goes To School: My True Story

Ruby Bridges Goes To School: My True Story by Ruby Bridges
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

When I picked this up, I was expecting more of the event from the author’s eyes. It pretty much only told the facts that I already knew, in a way a child could understand. I’ll have to look more to see if there is another book by the author, written for an older person.
