Boycott Blues
Boycott Blues: How Rosa Parks Inspired a Nation - Andrea Davis Pinkney,Brian Pinkney

AR: 2.9

Grade Level: 3rd-6th

Summary: Boycott Blues is a book all about how people, during the civil rights movement, dealt with segregation. The story is told from a "dog-tired hound", which makes the book even more interesting! 

Idea: I absolutely fell in love with this book the first time I read it! The fact that it's told from a dog, who's singing the "boycott blues" is amazing! I also love the fact that the author personifies segregation, as a menacing bird. This is an amazing book to intertwine social studies with, and to teach figurative language!

Have you ever had anyone tell you that you couldn't be something because of your race, gender, etc? Yeah? Well Grace can relate. This book is all about how Grace chooses to take on the role of achieving her goals, despite what her peers have to say about it. No matter what, YOU CAN be anything and everything you would like to be!

I absolutely love this book! It teaches so much about character and diverisity! A fun activity that I would allow students to participate in is acting out the book. This way, they can literally put their foot in someone else's shoes!
