Kizzy Ann Stamps is an African American child living in the south in the early 1960’s. All she has ever known is segregation. She was used to whites only signs everywhere she went and even though she didn’t think it was always fair, it was what she knew and what she expected.
At the end of the school year, Kizzy Ann learns that integration has come to her town and in the fall when she starts back to school, her school that is all black children will be closed and all of the students will be transferred to the white school. Kizzy Ann is very nervous about this change. Her teacher, Miss Anderson, knows that Kizzy Ann loves to write, so she encourages Kizzy Ann to write letters over the summer to her new teacher to help with the transition into the new school. Kizzy Ann thinks this is a good idea and can’t wait to get started.
Writing letters becomes a way for Kizzy Ann to express concerns about life, about her older brother and his behavior, her best friend Shag, who is the smartest Border Collie in the county, and about how she got the scar on her face and how looking different has affected her.
Read the heart- warming novel Kizzy Ann Stamps by Jeri Watts to find out more about the adventures that Kizzy Ann experiences that summer and fall of 1964, how she gets used to going to school with white teachers and students, and how Shag helps her make new friends.

KING OF THE MOUND - By Wes Tooke
Nick was going to be a baseball star; everyone who had seen him play always talked about his golden arm. Then, Nick is stricken with polio, a disease that killed thousands of people in the 1930’s.
Nick is in the hospital for almost a year and when he finally gets out of the hospital he doesn’t know how to go back to being a regular kid. He also doesn’t know how he’s ever going to play baseball again with an iron brace on his leg.
When he gets back home he doesn’t know what to do with himself and he wonders if it will ever be possible for him to play baseball again.
Then one day he meets Satchel Paige, who is also a star baseball player but has adversities of his own to overcome – the color of his skin. Black baseball players in the 1930’s were not given the same opportunities as white baseball players.
Read King of the Mound: My Summer with Satchel Paige by Wes Tooke and find out what these two unlikely baseball players have in common and how they encourage each other to never give up.
