Reviews

"In Shetterly and Conkling's approachable text, the reader is introduced to four hidden figures and given a broad look at the United States' history of segregation and fight for civil rights. Freeman's illustrations are striking, featuring bold, fully saturated colors. Feels as fresh as the original. Delightful and informative."--Shelf Awareness
"An important story to tell about four heroines, one that will lead young readers to the longer, more-nuanced coverage available when they are ready."--Kirkus Reviews
