    "This makes an ideal addition to women's history units."

    Booklist

    "A must for school and public libraries and those who love them."

    Kirkus

    "[An] easygoing picture-book biography."

    Horn Book

    "A concise, breezy chronology. Atwell's folk-art style acrylics capture a sense of history in the making, as well as the book's themes of excitement and change."

    Publishers Weekly

    "Atwell's cheery, doll-like figures and joyful colors are a good match for the woman who insisted that children's library space should be vibrant and stimulating."
