"This is a valuable addition to any school library or professional development library in a K-8 setting." - ARBAonline
"Fictional books in middle-school curricula frequently include works that do not reflect students' daily lives. This is especially true for racial minority students. In older works, people of color are often represented in circumstances that leave young readers unable to find a link to their own identities in the work. Carianne Bernadowski here offers a teaching guide using Coretta Scott King Award-winning books as the centerpiece of a middle school reading curriculum. The book provides background information for each title, course and study suggestions, and tools for assessing the skills and comprehension of the students. It is hoped, by presenting literature that more closely relates to their own lives, students will find greater comfort and reward by reading more literature." - Reference & Research Book News
"This book would be a great professional resource, and a must have for those educators that teach adolescents. Highly recommended." - Library Media Connection
"... Educators who want to introduce their students to stories with African American characters will find this a highly useful resource." - Catholic Library World
