Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Delivers a beautiful and tender message about equality from the very first page."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Cooper's richly textured illustrations evoke sepia photographs' dreamlike combination of distance and immediacy, complementing the aura of reminiscence that permeates Langley and Nathan's narrative."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"A solid addition to U.S. history collections for its subject matter and its first-person historical narrative."-- "School Library Journal"
