      1. The genre of this book is Historical Non-fiction. 2. This true story is about the life of Linda Brown, the young girl who was involved in the Brown v. Board of Education Decision case. This book has a collection of works that describe this time period and stories of the affect that this decision had on people. 3. a. The organization and style of this book is very interesting. We are able to see personal stories, poems, and pieces of work describing segregation and the experiences people faced [...]

      The book begins with nonfiction background information about Brown Vs. BOE in Topeka, Kansas, but it's not written in such a way that would render it useful in the middle school classroom. The introduction was, in my opinion, a terrible read. However, I did not give up. The rest of the book is a collection of personal narratives, poems, and essays about school segregation & desegregation. So far, I've only read Jerry Spinelli's narrative (fiction or non, I'm not sure!) about a black friend h [...]

      A collection of very personal essays, memoirs, and poems by ten of America's best children's authors. Some of the entries would be appropriate for children, and others are written for adults. Each of the authors experienced and wrote about the Supreme Court decision and the society that required the decision be made in his and her own way. My favorite entries are a heart-wrenching story by Newbery Award winner Jerry Spinelli about a black friend during his childhood and an equally sad memoir by [...]

      As much as this book is important for helping students understand the implications of Brown vs The Board of Education, I just couldn't figure out who the target audience is. Each of the essays are written with children in mind but they are dissimilar in style. I think students would find one or two of the stories/essays that would speak to them without the help of a teacher or an adult.On a positive note, reading the essays gave me some new thoughts about the down-side of Brown. interesting.

      This book is a compilation of short stories by various authors. I read aloud two selections from this book to my students for my graduate thesis. The stories were eye-opening and invoked critical responses from my students. I was thankful they had such strong reactions. This would be a great book to read aloud in a history class for both young and old students.

      This book is interesting because it illustrates the many effects of the case of Brown v. The Board of Education. Specifically, it acknowledges that there were some drawbacks as well as benefits and that America still has work to do as far as desegregating schools.

      Excited to share a few of the examples with my students. Just finished Jerry Spinelli's Maniac Magee, so excited to read them his piece.

      A collection of writings and reactions from children's authors. Perhaps most interesting was the discussion of the negative impacts of the desegregation ruling.
