Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa A. Caudill
Addy discovers she has been nominated to attend the Institute for Colored Youth, a teaching school for young, black school children. She is thrilled, but fears telling her family because of the high cost and her family's plans to move into a more expensive home. Addy's younger sister Esther, who always interferes with Addy's plans, ends up saving her big sister's day by secretly informing the family of Addy's opportunity. Addy surprisingly learns that her family not only knows about the school, but is also willing to sacrifice their new home to send her to the Institute. After the story is told, a separate section of the book explains how the Institute for Colored Youth was started and what the Institute did for African-Americans. A final section provides step by step instructions and illustrations on making your own paper kite like the one Addy did in the story. This informative book targets a historic time period that will especially interest young girls who want to know more about post civil war black history. It is part of "The American Girls Collection" series.
