This is the story of a boy named Brewster who can't wait to start the first grade until his mother tells him that he'll be going to Central, a school in the white neighborhood. When Brewster gets to school there's a bunch of white people with signs protesting the blacks arriving at the originally all-white school. They even broke one of the bus windows with a rock. As soon as Brewster walks into the school he goes to the water fountain to get some water, where a kid starts bullying him because of the color of his skin. Bryan, Brewster's brother, stands up for him, but both Bryan and Brewster still end up in detention. Miss O'Grady, the librarian, noticed Brewster picked a rocket ship book from the library and says that he'll make a great astronaut one day, but Brewster replies that he's going to be president one day. He suddenly felt stupid saying that knowing there's never been a black president before, but Miss O'Grady believes in Brewster. She explains to them that every child deserves an education and reads them a book about Kennedy, who was an Irish Catholic that became president during a time when people didn't want the Irish in their schools. Brewster returns home that day and tells her that he's going to be president one day.

This story was set in America during the mid-1950s, shortly after segregation in public schools was no longer allowed. This setting clarifies conflict between the main character and the other characters in the story since the main characters started to attend a predominately white school. I think this setting also illuminates the character, Miss O'Grady, because she was so caring of Brewster, regardless of his skin color and regardless of how the other characters treated him.

I absolutely love this book. Because this book is told from Brewster's perspective, it explains segregation in a child-friendly way and in a way that children would view it as if it were happening to them, which is really cool. I also love how kind and how much the teacher believes in Brewster despite the color of his skin. As a future teacher, I aspire to make a difference in my student's lives like Miss O'Grady did to Brewster. I think this book is a great book to read to your students when learning about segregation.

While this book focusing on a very serious matter it still manages to stay positive for the audience. I believe this would be a great book to read to a class. It does a wonderful job of showing kids to stay positive through anything life throws at them and to face new things with a smile. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book however it made me feel sad to reflect back on this part of our history. When reading the dates it really wasn't all that long ago that schools and public places were still segregated. I thank God for people like Miss O' Grady and who excepted people of all color and wanted them to succeed and encouraged them to try their best and believe that anything can be possible. ( )

Brewster and his brother are both black. They start school at Central which used to be an all white school. There are some bad experiences at first, but Brewster makes friends with the librarian who helps him learn to read.
