  • Amazing Grace Amazing Grace Listen to Amazing Grace – Grace loves stories, whether they’re in books or in movies or the kind her grandmother tells. She acts out the most exciting parts of all sorts of tales…sometimes Hiawatha, or Aladdin, of Joan of Arc…There’s nothing that Grace enjoys more. Determined to play Peter Pan in the school play, African-American Grace meets opposition in her classmates, who insist that Peter Pan is a boy and white.
