* "A darling book for all children but especially those with autism."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"A winningly inclusive conclusion."--Publishers Weekly
* "Every young reader, autistic or not, will likely identify with many of Bitsy's feelings....Windness' dusk-toned art plays up Bitsy's batlike behavior in clever ways, and the author-illustrator's personal note, as well as a footnote containing additional facts about autism, make Bitsy Bat, School Star a particularly helpful resource for all kids."--BookPage, STARRED REVIEW
* "A thought-provoking story of inclusion to share beyond the first day of school; every library will want to purchase this book."--School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
