“Rosa sat so Martin could march. Martin marched so Barack could run. Barack ran so Our Children Can Soar” (Bloomsbury, $16.99). Michelle Cook’s simple text connects African American historical figures, each one’s groundbreaking achievement leading to the next. Thirteen illustrators, including Bryan Collier and E.B. Lewis, collaborated to bring to life those who have laid building blocks for subsequent generations of African American and for all Americans. Ages 3 up.
