"The purpose is worthy, and the most perceptive aspect of the book is the interpretation of the reaction of the black family." (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)
Judy Blume is one of my 10 year old son's favorite authors. We listened to this together on a long trip. It was a good story, nice reader. The author attempts to tackle prejudice and I think she did a decent job putting this into a book for kids. Side note, I was very happy that my 10 yr old did not know what Negro meant, and we are black...that shows progress in America. I certainly knew what it meant and had heard it far too much when I was 10 yrs old.
