★ "[A] sure-to-inspire offering . . . Seeing all the accomplishments compiled in one place, in so many fields, gives the sense that history was--and is still being--made. The book itself is something of a parade of achievement, as each illustration is done by a different Asian American artist. The pages are colorful and action packed as well as poignant." - Booklist, starred review
