"I am on the Kids' Non-Fiction site and saw your comments, and, really, felt so happy to reach out to you and thank you. The books were a springboard for our journey into the fight for justice of so many amazing people. Each year, I looked forward to introducing such important women to my students.
"What I appreciated, being in a school based on a democratic philosophy of equality, equity, and the fight for justice, was to find your books at a reading level available to second graders (toward the end of the year) and third graders. We did this, often, in a whole class approach, sometimes reading in unison, at times by individuals, and, also, often read by me. I feel that my students were able to understand, appreciate, and empathize with these heroines. The discussions that followed allowed for much exploration."
