Reviews

This makes an ideal addition to women's history units.
--Booklist

A must for school and public libraries and those who love them.
--Kirkus

[An] easygoing picture-book biography.
--Horn Book

A concise, breezy chronology. Atwell's folk-art style acrylics capture a sense of history in the making, as well as the book's themes of excitement and change.
--Publishers Weekly

Atwell's cheery, doll-like figures and joyful colors are a good match for the woman who insisted that children's library space should be vibrant and stimulating.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
