This is another great introduction for kids to a lesser known part of African American history just prior to the Civil Rights movement. Cooper's illustrations are marvelous and showcase a wide emotional range while Ramsey's text is honest without sounding bitter. I love Ruth's growing awareness of her own heritage and self culminating in her gift of Brown Bear to a scared little boy.
