Victoria Thornton | 19 comments A powerful and emotional story of friendship, strength, injustice and bravery. Patricia Polacco is an amazing author, I pretty much enjoy all of her books. This book brings up a lot of topics and history about our country that is important for children to understand. It would be a great story to read at any grade level because of the theme and also the historical content. Of course, at the younger grade levels you would have to explain more about the times surrounding the story and that some things happened that weren’t right and fair to everyone. To me this is a must have for a classroom library.
