Make Way for Dyamonde Daniel (A Dyamonde Daniel Book) - Nikki Grimes This early chapter book features a smart, independent third-grader living in New York City. It's one of the few early chapter book series to feature primarily African-American characters. Even though she's new to her neighborhood and school, Dyamonde stands up to a mean new boy and ultimately they become friends.I was a little thrown off when the point of view switches to Free's (the friend's) about halfway through, but from then on we read both of their perspectives and I adjusted. The illustrations were a little harsh-looking for my tastes, but they were interesting.
