From Our Editors

Free from slavery, Addy Walker is adjusting to her new life in Philadelphia. However, when she enrolls in school she faces some unexpected obstacles. Her classmates are at a more advanced level than she is. Instead of falling behind or getting discouraged, Addy learns to read and write. Addy Learns a Lesson is part of the American Girls Collection.
