Who better than a bus could tell the story of young African-American Rosa McCauley, who had to walk miles to her one-room schoolhouse in Alabama while white children rode to their school in a bus? Who better than a bus could relate how white bus drivers like James Blake used to make black passengers pay their fares, then step off again and reenter through the rear door? That same James Blake was the driver who, one fateful day, ordered Rosa Parks to give up her seat to a white man. Rosa remained seated, inspiring others around the world to stand up for freedom.

In this refreshingly original biography, a little girl named Marcie learns why Rosa is the mother of the Civil Rights movement and celebrates her birthday with her on a talking bus.
