Praise

* “A glorious poetic celebration of the teacher and students at a Connecticut school that defied mid-19th-century convention to educate African-American girls.” –Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* “The images in their poems and in Cooper’s quiet, dramatic pastel illustrations compellingly capture the haunting history.” –Booklist, starred review

“Deftly crafted, interweaving colloquial and lofty language; reading aloud will emphasize the sonorous strength of the language, while the individual perspectives suggest possibilities for reader’s theater.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Book
