At six years old, Ruby faced a crowd whose simmering anger would shrivel the most resolute soul. This book's spreads carefully accentuate Ruby with color just a shade brighter than everything else. And, her family's faith speaks just a little louder than the surrounding turmoil, eventually turning heads and softening hearts. A beautiful portrayal of courage, forgiveness, and trust in God for strength.
Publisher Summary
The inspirational true story of Ruby Bridges.

The year is 1960, and six-year-old Ruby Bridges and her family have recently moved from Mississippi to New Orleans in search of a better life. When a judge orders Ruby to attend first grade at William Frantz Elementary, an all-white school, Ruby must face angry mobs of parents who refuse to send their children to school with her. Told with Robert Coles' powerful narrative and dramatically illustrated by George Ford, Ruby's story of courage, faith, and hope continues to resonate more than 60 years later.
