"Abrams shares her love of words in this picture book drawn from a childhood memory. Readers will see the beginnings of a lifelong fascination with words, as well as the passion for fighting for others. A great addition for collections looking for stories about current political figures, as well as story time with a biography emphasis." -- School Library Journal (starred review)
"This engaging, edifying, delightfully nerdy childhood retrospective from one of today's inspirational leaders speaks volumes." -- Kirkus Reviews
"With warmth and candor, politician and voting rights activist Abrams tells a fictionalized story of her first spelling bee, emphasizing the value of education, of focusing on effort over result, and of standing up to bullying. In competition, Abrams reminds readers, victory can take years to arrive--and integrity and courtesy are always more important." -- Publishers Weekly
"Charming and powerful." -- Booklist
