Daisy and the Doll by Michael Medearis, Angela Shelf Medearis, Larry Johnson

Boldness and a gift for improvising verse enable eight-year-old African American Daisy Turner to triumph over an incident of discrimination in her nineteenth century rural Vermont school. Told in Daisy’s voice, the book’s themes of identity and self-affirmation offer a powerful lesson to today’s youngsters who face similar situations of prejudice and stereotyping in twenty-first century classrooms. Suggestions on the concluding page provide creative ways for young readers to develop their own storytelling style in verse. Ages 6-10.

We have almost 2000 books for children at our house but this is one of the favorites. Our 7 year old Norwegian/African-American daughter absolutely loves it and the highlight was hearing Daisy Turner's voice on the internet, talking about her story. READ THIS BOOK!
