Ron's Big Mission by Corinne Naden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ron runs through his neighborhood without stopping - where is he going? To the Library! Ron loves to read but he can only read the books at the library, never take them home. You see Ron is black and only white people can take the books out of the library. But Ron is determined to change things and make a difference!
Wonderful book based on the true life story of Ron McNair (one of the astronauts who lost thier lives on the space shuttle Challenger.) It is a story that tells children not to be afraid to stand up for what they know is right. It lets them know that they can make a difference and, in Ron's own words, "Spread your wings and fly to the sky."
