"The tone of the book is inspiring, but Brown doesn't shy away from the mistreatment Chisholm encountered . . . Crews' vividly textured illustrations positively sing, enhancing the text and making for a perfect introduction for young readers everywhere. As powerful as the woman it profiles."--starred, Kirkus Reviews

"Celebrates her successes, indomitable spirit, and lasting legacy through an effective combination of free-verse poetry and digital collage illustrations. . . . Crews folds texture, patterns, and wonderful details into her artwork that evoke the time and setting, as well as Chisholm's sparkling character."--Booklist

"The layered, collage-style digital illustrations are show-stoppers . . . Many speak her name but few younger readers know her work; this is recommended for early nonfiction collections."--School Library Journal

"Brown's narrative free verse and Crews's heavily patterned digital vector art contemporize Chisholm's 'Let us move beyond hate' message as just as relevant today."--Publishers Weekly
