**STARRED REVIEW**
"Delivers a beautiful and tender message about equality from the very first page."

**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Cooper’s richly textured illustrations evoke sepia photographs’ dreamlike combination of distance and immediacy, complementing the aura of reminiscence that permeates Langley and Nathan’s narrative."
— Publishers Weekly

"A solid addition to U.S. history collections for its subject matter and its first-person historical narrative."
— School Library Journal
