Praise for What's the Big Deal About Freedom "Bolstering the upbeat tone of the writing while emphasizing the racial and religious diversity of Americans, the lively watercolor-and-pencil illustrations are consistently engaging and occasionally endearing. A hopeful, idealistic portrayal of freedom in America." --Booklist "An effective place for children to begin learning about the concept of freedom." --School Library Journal
