Courtney's Birthday PartyBook - 1998 | ON ORDER
Courtney is very excited. Her seventh birthday is only a few days away and her mother has planned a special party. All of Courtney's classmates will be invited, including Courtney's best friend Diana. Courtney and Diana have so much in common and are alike in many ways. They ride the same bus to school; they sit on the same seat on the bus; they sit next to each other in class; they like the same kinds of snacks. It has never mattered to them that one is white and one is black.Courtney's mother doesn't invite Diana to the party. Both she and Courtney are devastated. Neither of them really understands why the one way they are different is more important than the many ways they are the same. With energetic prose, Dr. Long tackles a tough subject and reminds us that prejudice is often learned through the things that are left unsaid. At the same time she inspires us to see that it is possible for adults to learn valuable lessons from the friendships forged by their children.
