Reviews

"This lively biography chronicles some of the ways Abigail continued to surprise her contemporaries with her new ideas, strong voice, and constant courage."
--School Library Connection

"An engaging and illuminating depiction of a woman whose story deserves to be known widely."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Leave It to Abigail! * "Informative.... Appealing.... Highly recommended."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Through lively text, the author showcases the ways Adams was ahead of her time. The refrain, 'Leave it to Abigail, ' adds a rhythm to the narrative, making this a good choice to read aloud. Baddeley (I Dissent, 2016) adds humor and panache with her pencil-and-ink illustrations, adding an authentic feel through lovely cross-stitch finishing touches."
