From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-This easy-reader biography concentrates on the story of the Quaker teacher's fight to keep open the first school in the U.S. for African-American girls. The story begins in 1832, one year after Crandall opened the Canterbury (Connecticut) Female Boarding School, as she met with strong community opposition for accepting an African-American student. Facing the prospect of being forced to close her school, the educator decided to open it to black students only. Despite the community's legal challenges to the school, it was only after the townspeople physically attacked the building that she decided to close it because of her concern for student safety. An afterword about her later life and a chronology follow. The large-print, easy-to-read text and many full-color paintings and a black-and-white portrait of Crandall will appeal to beginning readers.
