KINDERGARTEN TO FIRST GRADE readers will read about a period in American history when segregation laws denied African-American people equal rights. The story is told from the point of view of a fictitious character, Marissa, who witnesses the bravery Rosa Parks displayed when she refused to give up her seat on the bus. The story provides students with the opportunity to learn how one person can make a difference. Discussion questions after the reading help build interest and comprehension. Learner objectives: sequence events, high-frequency words
Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their reading level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.
A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level is to understand that level aa to C provides average kindergarten instruction; D to J—first grade; K to Q—second grade; R to U—third grade; V to Z—fourth and fifth grade. The letters earliest in the alphabet match beginning of the year instruction while letters at the end of each grade range match skills at the end of that grade year.
This book is available as part of a ten-book set in the Level J Library.

Ratings and Reviews
I read the book first before reading it to my 5 year old. I think he will like it and it's easy enough for him to understand.
Rosa Parks Rides
This is a sensitive telling of Rosa Parks famous bus ride. A story that every child must hear with an understanding that life is not always fair and if possible we can use our personal skills to help bring change. Thank you Learning A-Z for bringing the world this title. I LOVE the discussion questions afterwards. Shows that even easy readers have depth. Great job!
