"Powerful, moving, necessary." - Kirkus, Starred Review
"A soaring poetic tribute to a human rights champion." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A lyrical and evocative approach to [Sojourner Truth's] story." - School Library Journal
"Schmidt's fluid prose is nicely suited to reading aloud to primary-grade audiences, but Minter's arresting artwork extends the age range... Even picture-book collections in which [Sojourner Truth] is well represented will surely make space for this engrossing work." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A stirring introduction to an extraordinary life - Daniel Minter's paintings, in saturated tones of midnight blues and leaf browns and golds, bring it powerfully to life." - The New York Times Book Review
