2009 Award
Ruby Bridges Goes to School
( by Ruby Bridges, Scholastic $3.99 Score: )

Using language that developing readers can handle and photographs that convey that this is a true story, Ruby Bridges tells her remarkable story. It was she who braved the segregated schoolhouse with federal marshals in the battle for civil liberties. Using archival Life magazine photos by Margaret Bourke-White and others, this is a handsome little book that will surely be used during Black History month in schools and/or as a treasure in the family library.  You can hear Ruby Bridges herself read the story on Scholasticís website.
