Mankind's biggest example of stupidity, putting the value of a person based on their skin colour. Outrageous!

I read this book aloud to a fourth grade book club that visited the library. They were struck by the difficulty Richard had in getting a library card and how important it was to him. This is an uplifting story, an important aspect being the friendship he makes that helps him with his goal.
