Great for teaching young children our history. I loved the pics. This is maybe for a child maybe about 4 and older. I just wanted to surround my 2 year old with the info even if he didn't get it yet. We have to teach our children our history because they won't learn it anywhere else and this is a good place to start.

Good for the library.
I love these picture book biographies by David Adler. He does a wonderful job not only presenting the information in a memorable way but making his subjects seem like real people. Thurgood Marshall was the first African-American to serve on the Supreme Court and a fascinating, determined man championing for Civil Right at a pivotal time in our nation’s history. This is a fantastic book to read with students during Black History Month or any time
