The Story of Ruby Bridges

Special Anniversary Edition

Author: Robert Coles; Illustrator: George Ford

  • AGES 7 - 8 
  • Genre Biography and Autobiography
This beautiful picture book, illustrated by Coretta Scott King Award-illustrator George Ford, and written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Coles, tells the true story of six-year-old Ruby Bridges. In 1960, Ruby, a young African-American girl, entered a whites-only school in New Orleans. Even though she had to pass through crowds of angry protesters, Ruby bravely walked into the school. Every day for months, Ruby persevered. White parents pulled their children out of the school, and Ruby and her teacher were alone in the classroom. Still, Ruby and her family would not give in.Both the text and the watercolor paintings of this book capture Ruby's incredible strength, the love of her family, and the turmoil of America in the early 1960s.
