I Am Rosa Parks is the newest title in the New York Times bestselling series Ordinary People Change The World (A non-fiction picture book series celebrating real American icons) by New York Times bestselling author & History Channel’s Brad Meltzer.

Brad has written a beautifully illustrated book about Rosa Parks and the little-known and even never-before-heard story of the hero’s childhood.

“This series was born because I was tired of my daughter thinking that reality TV stars and loud-mouthed sports players were heroes. I tell my kids all the time: That’s fame. Fame is different than being a hero. I wanted my kids to see real heroes…and real people no different than themselves. For that reason, each book tells the story of the hero when THEY were a kid. We see them as children. So it’s not just Amelia Earhart and Abraham Lincoln being famous–but them being just like us.”

– Brad Meltzer
