Reviews
"An engaging and educational historical reference."--ALA Booklist
"Beautifully intricate illustrations, rendered with antique pens, sepia ink, and watercolors, suit the text well. Thoughtful design, well-chosen facts, and an approachable format combine to make a book readers will enjoy and appreciate."--School Library Journal
"Goode's illustrations are often breathtaking. Roberts' lively text is illuminated with flourishes and curlicues along with winsome or whimsical portraits in what looks like ink and watercolor. It is a wonderful package, adding the women who made it work to the men we thought we all knew. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Highlights the roles of the expected (Abigail Adams, Martha Washington) and unexpected (Mercy Otis Warren, Catherine Littlefield Green) sheroes who attended to the birth of our nation." From the article "Rad Women Your Girls (and Boys!) Should Read About"--Brightly
