Story of Ruby Bridges, The This picture book biography of Ruby Bridges, suitable for younger readers, tells how the 6 year old girl helped shape American history when she began attending a school previously barred to black children. It describes her courage in running the daily gauntlet of racist abuse, and her willingness to be educated alone in a classroom - until the boycott by white parents broke down, and their children began to return to class.
