Negro: When a ship goes down a black man saves a little white boy. They are on a raft together, but they are lost at sea. The old man takes care of the young boy, but is still treated like he is not free. The two boys gain a trust and friendship, but will they survive or be found? This book would be great for upper elementary to teach about racial problems in the past, and it also raises the question of if we can overcome prejudice today.
