    One of 8 NY Times Notable Children's Books 0f 2011
    2011 National Council for Social Studies–Notable Trade Book
    “Though broaching the idea of segregation with young children is a sensitive proposition, Busing Brewster helps put a human face on an important issue and shows what “forced busing” felt like to those on the inside.”
    —San Francisco Book Review

    “This memorable book looks at what it was like to be a part of the desegregation of schools in America. In addition, it shows readers how books can open up doors in the minds of children; books can help children to see that they do have the power to change their world if they want to.” (read more)
    —Through The Looking Glass Review

    “Richard Michelson has written another excellent piece of historical fiction.”
    —Forwords Books

    “Busing Brewster (distills the heady topic of forced busing in the 1970s into a story appropriate for elementary schoolers. It's to author Richard Michelson's credit — and the story's success — that he doesn't shy away from thorny details. Though the ending is a hopeful one, the painful history Michelson references should provoke plenty of discussion once the book's covers are closed.”
    —The Statesman

    “Michelson tells a small story about a huge issue – the busing of black children to previously all-white schools in the 1970s – and makes it accessible to younger children.”
    —The News Tribune

    “This powerful and tender story of desegregation busing in the 1970s introduces readers to the brave young heroes who helped to build a new world.”
    —Powell’s Books

    “Richard Michelson, has succeeded, again, in writing an engaging picture book about tough race relations with great sympathy and interest.”
    —The Odyssey Bookshop

    “While many teachers cover desegregation in their curriculum, they haven’t had as fine a resource as Busing Brewster. This is definitely a title to add to your classroom collection.”
    — Picture Book Review
