By the author of Wind of Spring, this is a quite charming story of a teacher and her school in a small New England town. Though heartfelt, its attack on prejudice and its equally sincere defense of true democracy, it is strongest in its likable children, in the picture of the two little brothers who are ostracized because of their shoddy background. Many Rowen's work to build respect for all races results in a satisfying, though not ideal, outcome. Enjoyable, tender and quite lovable characters.
