Praise

Praise for Mother Jones and Her Army of Mill Children:

“A stellar introduction to an important and ongoing social issue.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Winter’s affirmative text, paired with Carpenter’s dramatic art featuring an insistent Mother, dramatically demonstrate both the injustice and determination.” —Booklist, starred review

“Adroitly capture[s] both the grim reality of children at work and the irresistible hope of people coming together to demand change.” —Publishers Weekly

“The theme—that progress is worth fighting for and may not show immediate success—is there for the taking.” The Horn Book

“An engaging topic for starting discussion of child labor in America’s past and the worldwide child-labor abuses that continue today.”  —The Bulletin 

Praise for Jonah Winter’s Elvis is King!:

“Readers will want to pore over this thoroughly engaging volume.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“[A] sly, rollicking picture book bio of Elvis Presley and his rise from mic-shy blond tyke to teen dreamboat with product-infused raven hair who turned his stage-fright trembling into iconic sex appeal” —The Bulletin, starred review

Praise for Nancy Carpenter’s A Letter to My Teacher:

“A valuable lesson in empathy, internalized and paid forward.”  —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Hopkinson’s moving epistolary text and Carpenter’s emotionally incisive flashbacks chronicle the evolving relationship between an impulsive second grader and her life-changing teacher.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
