* "Exhilarating language. . . . Mahin's words match well with Ramirez's intense, beautifully colored folk art, a mosaic of brown faces, young and old. The pictures demand second, even third looks . . . A biography fitting of the man's music."--Booklist, Starred Review
* "A musical journey perfectly aimed at young readers' excitement to know what they will be."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
* "Vibrant, beautifully colorful folk art illustrations complement the story of Santana's life. . . .This outstanding biography for early elementary readers is a compelling story of persistence in pursuing goals."--School Library Connection, Highly Recommended
