Daria Peoples-Riley makes children's books with a few inspirational words and a whole lot of colorful paint. She is a former 6th grade teacher who hopes to change the world one book at a time. She has also illustrated This Is It.


"A great read for younger kids who want to be inspired to make positive change in the world. Pair it with Debbie Levy's I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark. . . . An excellent picture book biography about a courageous activist, advocate, and leader." --School Library Journal

"Filled with bright pop art and thought-provoking images, patterns, and styles that transform as the years pass, Gloria's story will inspire a new generation to follow their dreams and fight for equality." --Foreword Reviews

"A tribute to feminist icon, activist, and writer Gloria Steinem. . . . Engaging." --Kirkus Reviews

"Give[s] a new generation background into Gloria Steinem's life and influence." --School Library Connection

"Adding to the growing, yet still needed, #MeToo books for young readers . . . Textured and digitally enhanced mixed-media illustrations evoke the diversity she celebrated." --Booklist
