Publisher's Summary

Seven-year-old Lennie has just moved with his family to a new home. On his first day of school, at a time when racial integration in schools was new, he discovers he is the only black person in his classroom. With the gentle support of his parents and a positive attitude, Lennie finds solutions to his troubles. This sweet story is packed with great moral messages for young listeners. 

"May Justus (1898-1989) authored over 60 children's books, almost all of which were set in her home state of Tennessee. I am grateful that this talented writer left us a treasury of such delightful literature, and I am grateful that we can bring her books back to children. It's not surprising that behind such admirable literature is such an admirable woman. Not only was May Justus an inspiring school teacher, but she also served children with special needs, maintained a children's library in her attic for 20 years, and was a committed supporter of racial equality, losing membership in her church for her bold efforts to end racism." (Jenny Phillips)

My 7 Year old Loved it and so did I

Very sweet story. The characters are kind and compassionate. The second grade children in the book are good examples for my own second grader. The book also shows that being new or feeling different can be scary, and the remedy for all is to be kind and friendly.

From Charlie age 7: "It is an awesome audio book. I like it."
