    One thought on “Viola Desmond Won't Be Budged”

    1. As Viola Desmond will be gracing Canadian currency, I wanted to know more about her. This was the only book my library had on her. This book centres on the incident in 1946 that made Viola Desmond take a stand: being forced to move from the main floor in a movie theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, to the upper floor, where blacks had to sit. She refused, and ended up in jail, though she had repeatedly said she was willing to pay the difference in price between the two types of movie tickets. Sh [...]

    2. This is an excellent new picture book biography about Canadian Civil Rights pioneer Viola Desmond. Like her better-known counterpart Rosa Parks, Viola refused to give up her seat--but in this case in a segregated movie theatre in 1946 Nova Scotia, rather than a city bus in 1955 Montgomery.The story is told in a folksy, oral-history tradition, with the narrator speaking directly to the audience, drawing us into this compelling story of racism and courage. Viola, owner of a beauty salon, is forced [...]

    3. This is an illustrated children's book . The pictures are vibrantly colored. Most Canadians have heard of Rosa Parks in the United States and her refusal to move to the back of the bus. Viola Desmond had a similar struggle 9 years earlier and it was in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. She owned a beauty parlor business in Halifax and was a well respected member of her community.On her way to some business meetings in Cape Breton the car she was driving broke down in New Glasgow and she was told it woul [...]

    4. Do you know who Viola Desmond was? Neither did I until I was searching for stories about female civil rights heroes. Desmond has a similar story to Rosa Parks, only her abuse happened 10 years earlier in Canada. The writing is clever. As a read-aloud the words are fun to recite and you can imagine talking with Viola as if she were standing in front of you. A great read to my 2nd and 3rd grade students.

    5. With it being Black History Month, I wanted to find something that would give the girls a sense of Black Canadian history as well, so I ordered this from a amazon and it arrived the last day of the month, just in time to read it to them. The story is simple but effective and a good jumping off point for discussion once they get older. And I loved the illustrations.

    6. A fascinating story from African-Canadian civil rights history about the defiant actions of one woman inspiring others to really against discrimination. Viola Desmond is someone who should included in discussions about Rosa Parks and Claudette Colvin.

    7. When children ask who that is on the new $10 bill, this is the book to pull off the shelf for them. Very much an oversimplification of Desmond’s life, condensed just to the snapshot in time when she truly made her mark. However, there is so much more to her story that should be looked up by older children.

    8. Canadian Viola Desmond's experience with segregation in a movie theater took place several years before Rosa Parks and her famous bus incident. I always love historical fiction picture books. An interesting read.

    9. A book that everyone should read! I am glad that she will be honored and put on the Canadian ten dollar bill in 2018. She will be the first Canadian woman to be on the currency. Good for you Viola for standing your ground in the face of racism and hate!!

    10. What do you know about the Civil Rights movement in America. Can you think of a person who fought for civil rights? Turn and talk to you partner about that. Some of you may know that the Civil Rights movement in America was hard time for many Americans. People like Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa parks helped gain equality for black people in America. Today we are going to read about about a lady named Viola Desmond. She fought for Civil Rights, but she did not live in America. She lived in a pl [...]

    11. The genre of this book is a biorgaphy. The age group for this book is 8 and up. This book is about a woman name Viola who was an African AMerican woman back in slavery time; who went to the movies but was in the wrong section and was arrested because she would not get up. I rated this book 5 stars because Viola was a strong woman, she changed the world, and she was very brave to stand up for her rights. The plot of this story is a woman name Viola who made a diffrence in the world by standing up [...]

    12. A simple children's book that tells the basic story of a heroic Canadian woman who fought for civil rights. This book could easily be a great starting off point for classroom discussions, especially since Viola Desmond will soon be featured on our $10 bill. I'd be interested to read more about this fascinating woman.

    13. Interesting story of a woman in Canada who wanted to watch a movie in a close seat. She was willing to pay the higher ticket price and refused to leave her seat. She was arrested, fined and even the courts threw out her appeals. To me, its emotional appeal wasn't as strong as some of the other books I've read about Civil Rights but it did have an informative author's note and it was interesting to read a bit about Canada's history and civil rights movement.

    14. Viola Desmond, a beauty school owner, refused to move to another seat in a movie theater, and found herself leading the fight against racial discrimination in Canada. I thought that the history of African American immigration in and out of Canada was interesting and Desmond's story should be more widely known, but the writing wasn't engaging.

    15. I bought this book with the idea I'd incorporate it in a history lesson when Ezra was a bit older. It's a wonderful short story detailing the brave actions of Viola Desmond. The illustrations and beautiful and the wording is concise and easy to read.

    16. I learned so much about the Canadian Civil Rights movement through this colorful, punchy picture books. I never knew that segregation existed in Canada and that Viola Desmond was Canada's Rosa Parks of sorts.

    17. For young readers familiar with the story of Rosa Parks, this is another brave woman who also stood her ground in the face of institutionalized racism in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Very interesting historical perspective.
