In the fall of 1962, Belle Teal Harper arrives for her first day of fifth grade to find parents protesting the law that says Negro children can now attend school with whites.

Belle Teal is a 2002 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People and a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2001.

Set in a small rural community of the 1960's, it tells the powerful story of a strong-willed girl who grapples with poverty, her grandmother's illness, and the integration of her all-white school.
  • Great historical fiction for the middle school years. Our students read it in 5th grade and also study the integration of schools in the US at the same time in social studies.

  • This book was very inspiring and I thought it was nice with all the characters. In my opinion the best part was the ending when Belle Teal realized that you can't m as me the bad things go away.

  • This is a great book it tells the story of a girl whose positive brave smart and kind. One of the best books ever!!

  • I'm just disappointed with condition of the book I bought. I wanted this particular cover and I was told it was in very good condition, It's okay at best.

  • Belle Teal is about a schoolgirl who has grown up on their family’s farm and is, more or less, the outcast at school. To add to that, the first African American children are being integrated into the elementary schools, and she befriends one of them quickly. Their evolving and growing friendship begins to center at showing the other kids that her friend isn’t that different from the rest of the kids. The racism and hypocrisy of the time Belle recognizes faintly, and it’s evident to her that sticking with those who care about her is important.
    This book is meant for younger children in elementary school. I loved it when I read it because it introduced a lot of new ideas to me and got me thinking about the world in a greater sense than just my home, school, and experiences. I love it because it shows how the innocence and ignorance of children is stronger than things like racism and hate in the world, and how those degrading feelings are taught and not natural. I love it because it is so honest, and you can feel the hurt and struggle of this young girl as you read. For example, Belle Teal talks about her love for her grandmother: “Gran, she is amazing, even if she has become a little forgetful (1).” She is experiencing the pain that comes with a loved one having Alzheimer’s which is a very big thing for a young child to grasp. Another hard thing to deal with that I can definitely relate to is having a single mother who works her butt off at the expense of being able to spend time with each other. For example, “I wish Mama was home for my last day of summer freedom, but she went into Coker Creek this morning to begin her new job. Mama, she starts jobs like I start library books - one right after the other (2).”
    Even if you aren’t in elementary school, this book is a nice escape and a refreshing read to bring back into perspective the joys and beauty of life without focusing on senselessness like racism and hate. You can find this book at most book stores and online for about $2.93. It only has 215 pages, so it is a very quick read. I think it will bring a lot of people back to their core values.

    Imagine being a little girl that doesn't have very many friends, until someone new moves to her town. If you like books that give good detail and you could picture yourself there, then this is the book for you. In this book they teach you something, it gives you a message.

    To begin this book has a great message. The message is you can't judge someone by the way someone else judges someone. Second, it makes you actually feel like it's something that's really happening. It describes things good and brings the characters to life. All in all it makes you feel like your really there. It gives really descriptive detail.

    This book kind of reminds me of my life, because I don't really have that many friends. The family in this book is modern when it comes to having money, and mine is the same. This book is so good, because you feel like you could just jump into it, and go right along with the story.

    People who don't really like a lot of action in a book, should read this book. Girls would mostly like this book. My friend Danielle Bolin had just checked out this book, and I told her that it was a really good book. I said" so how did you like the book?" and she replied "it was very interesting and I really liked it!" The age that would like it best would range from about 9 to 13. Females would like it best rather than males. Boys that are into games, action, and things like that would probably not like this book.

    What sticks out to me the most is that Belle Teal doesn't care what people think about her or her friends, and the message. You should read this book. So remember if you like books with good descriptive detail, then this is the book for you.

  • I liked the book it tells why being prejudice is never a good thing. The story is about a little girl, and her name is Belle Teal. She lives with her Grandma and Mother. She is excited about the first day of school, and her teacher is Ms. Casey. She loves her teacher. On the first day of school the colored children came to the school. The parents were very upset. They all had signs saying how the colored children should not be able to attend there school. When school started there was a colored boy in her class by the name of Darryl. The other children did not like him at all. Then there was a prissy girl by the name of Vanessa Mathers they named her HRH. The both of them were the new students in the class. The other boys Chas, Vernon, and Little Boss were the bullies of the class. Little Boss was never a bully until he started hanging around them. When CHRISTmas was there the class had a pageant to do. Belle Teal was Mary that made HRH mad. She thinks she is Queen B. Darryl got to be the king. Which made the other kids mad. Later on Little Boss was fooling around with his fathers gun and accidentally shot himself. He tried to tell his dad what happened his father blamed it on Darryl.
