Description

A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book A New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book Brewster is excited about starting first grade . . . until Mama announces that he'll be attending Central--a school in the white part of town. Mama says they have art and music and a library bursting with books, but Brewster isn't so sure he'll fit in.

Being black at a white school isn't easy, and Brewster winds up spending his first day in detention at the library. But there he meets a very special person: Miss O'Grady. The librarian sees into Brewster's heart and gives him not only the gift of books but also the ability to believe in himself.

This powerful and tender story of desegregation in the 1970s introduces readers to the brave young heroes who helped to build a new world.

From the Hardcover edition.
