    The story of Ruby Bridges is a lovingly illustrated true story of Ruby Bridges As a young 6 year old girl, growing up in the South during the days of the Civil Rights movement, Ruby was selected by the courts and ordered to attend the all white school of Franz Elementary School Every morning became a variation of a frightening, degrading experience, with hordes of angry people lining the sidewalks, jeering, shouting insults and worse How she handles this is what makes this book special, because she was a special girl The illustrations add a special charm and perspective for both adults and children I was really touched when I read Julie s review on this and knew I wanted to read this A big thank you to Julie for her review I remember the news clips of this, and of the other young black children ordered to attend white schools These events not only chan...

    I pray for me, that I would be strong and not afraid I pray for my enemies, that God would forgive them On November 1960, in New Orleans Ruby Bridges was the first African American student to attend William Frantz Elementary School Received by a crowd of a white mob, Ruby marched into the school At six years old, Ruby showed great courage as day after day she got this same welcome Despite the crowds, Ruby persisted.WOW, this truly was an amazing story Ruby Bridges was volunteered by her parents and the NAACP to be the first to integrate the elementary school On the first day, a mob of white adults showed up to protest By the third day, Ruby had to have four US marshals escort her into the school as the mob s insults escalated into threats Shouting chants along the lines of 2 4 6 8, we will never integrate and parading a black doll in a coffin, the crowd of white adults essentially picked on a six year old child that was only trying to get an education Ruby did not miss a single day, not one What is amazing is her maturity and pure heart She actually prayed for them, for those people that quite literally wished her harm Miss Bridges had sense in her pinky than most adults, living and dead Such was her bravery that Norman Rockwell depicted her in painting titled The Problem We All Live With It baffles me that adults would behave in such a horrible way towards a child and but I am impressed by her reaction A true he...

    Robert Coles, the imminent Harvard child psychiatrist and activist for all children, penned this wonderful book in 1995, the same year I used Civil Rights funds to bring him up to NH for some workshops for teachers and administrators on child welfare and the role of race racism and poverty in children s resiliency An excellent and only 5 minute interview with Cole explaining the story of Ruby Bridges in the context of her role in the Civil Rights Movement as the first of a group of six, 6 year old African American students to have military accompaniment into an all White elementary school in 60 is here, and it s worth it just for the BW pictures of the setting When I had Dr Coles up working with teachers I remember hearing him repeat some of the what she and her family, and others told her about that day that was mostly heartbreaking because of how the experience had damaged her, but there were also Victor Frankl like moments of grace and courage that were breathtaking We heard from him how he d met and provided therapy to Bridges, and came to know her and interviewed her for the book that had just come out Bridges did become an activist and philanthropist for the causes of Civil Rights through the Ruby Bridges Foundation at Cole is such an interdisciplinary thinker and has also like me has taught across at least fi...

    The Story of Ruby Bridges is a classic example of how courageous, non violent people and acts helped end the civil rights movement I read this book to my class every year at least once, so that they can see the power a young school girl had just through her actions Every time I read this story, I am inspired to make sure that my students are not limited to the opportunities that they have in school The story begins by introducing Ruby, a young African American girl growing up in the South during the Civil Rights movement When Ruby is ordered by the court to attend an all white school, angry protests break out Although Ruby is threatened everyday when she enters and exits school, she never gets discouraged In fact she prays for the angry protestors to change their ways Although the steps she took were small, they made a big difference in her school, her state and eventually her actions were a factor which contributed into the end of Civil Rights movement George Ford, the illustrator of this book, uses watercolor paintings to depict the uneasy atmosphere of the books setting His use of double page bleeds throughout the book makes the reader feel intimate with the characters, like they are going to school right alon...
