About the Author
When Judi Cunningham heard years ago about the exercise that Jane Elliott led her third grade class through, she was struck by a determination that all children need to know the lesson learned long ago. The day after Martin Luther King Jr was killed, Jane Elliott taught her class about prejudice and civil rights in a way that they never forgot. This colorful story book is the only Jane Elliott-approved account of the exercise written for children. Told in lilting rhyme, the reader follows best friends Bobby and Marie through an eventful day in their third grade class, a day that they would even tell their children about in years to come. Jane Elliott is portrayed as "the great Mrs Bowers" because nothing rhymes with Elliott. School teachers will be glad to know that there is also a workbook to accompany the story book, written by the illustrator, Rozenia Cunningham.
