The Bus Ride
Sarah and her mother ride the bus every day. There are lots of other people on the bus, but some passengers aren't allowed to sit in certain areas.
One day, Sarah decides to see what she's missing by sitting at the back of the bus. The moment she moves up front she sets off a commotion that reverberates furiously throughout the city.
The award-winning author and artist, William Miller and John Ward, poignantly portray a child who discovers the courage of her convictions. With its inspiring introduction by Rosa Parks, The Bus Ride is a timely reminder for readers of all ages that no act is too small when it comes to confronting injustice.
