Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The quick moral? Don’t let the world judge you—'You tell them who you are.' The story is inclusive of all girls and some nonbinary folk in uplifting illustrations that shout the lessons, that 'too' is darkly overwhelming, but women before her have opened doors. Here, also, is the quote children everywhere have been learning in this political season—'You may be the first someday, but don’t be the last—make space for more!' School Library Journal
