THE DOT (Written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, narrated by Thora Birch) Vashti may not be able to draw, but she can at least make dot. At the school art show, her dot makes a big splash.
AMAZING GRACE (Written by Mary Hoffman, illustrated by Caroline Binch, narrated by Alfre Woodard) Grace’s classmates discourage her from trying out for Peter Pan in the school play because she is black and a girl. But guess who wins the part and proves them wrong.
