Praise

#1 on the New York Journal of Books Notable Children’s Books 2018 list

“For your budding astrophysicist, inventor, doctor, environmentalist, or mathematician, Kid Scientists will open her eyes with mini-bios of interesting and accomplished people.”— Terri Schlichenmeyer, The Bookworm Sez

“This book is a great way to encourage kids who already love science to pursue their interests as well as to show kids who are not motivated by traditional schooling that there are many paths to greatness.”American Scientist Magazine 

“Portraits of 16 bright lights in the scientific firmament, with particular focus on some of their lesser-known quirks and achievements…Worthy role models all.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Lively and informative.”—Booklist

“A funny and inspiring book for children and adults.”—New York Journal of Books 

Kid Scientists is filled with cute illustrations. . . [and] mini-biographies that are interesting, funny, and, most importantly, relevant to kids today.”—Geek Dad

“A perfect book for kids who love science.” — GeekDad
 
“I can think of no better way to convey to children that their heroes were once just like them.”—Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star

Praise for Kid Authors:

“Lively glimpses of formative moments and budding talents.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A fun and useful addition, especially for aspiring writers and class projects.”—School Library JournalPaige Rowse, Needham High School, MA
 
“This is an ideal gift for aspiring young writers who may need proof that even the most famous authors had to start somewhere.”—Shelf Awareness for Readers

“[Kid Authors] was full of real information, but the author made it fun and funny … I would recommend this book for all people who read books and want to know interesting information about authors, and also for people who want to be authors themselves.”—Michael, age 9

Praise for Kid Presidents:
“Just like history class, only hilarious.”—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever

“With cartoonish illustrations that will attract fans of Jeff Kinney’s The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renée Russell’s The Dork Diaries, this informative offering leaves no presidential childhood rock unturned.”—School Library Journal

“Caricatures by Horner are whimsical and funny, a good match for a book that demonstrates that every president started life as a goofy, regular kid.”—Booklist

Praise for Kid Artists:
“Impressively diverse.”—Booklist

“For budding artists, here’s a heartening reminder that 17 unconventional greats—not to mention all the rest—started out as children too.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“Memorably weird childhood moments—Jackson Pollock accidentally had part of a finger chopped off and then eaten by a rooster—are likely to stick with readers, as will Horner’s impish cartoons.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Kid Athletes:
“Outstanding…Inspiring and entertaining, Kid Athletes isn’t just for sports fans.”—Booklist, starred review

“Even if you don’t exactly love sports, this book only says a little bit about them in the actual sport, so go out and get this book because it will teach you a lot and you will enjoy it immensely.”—Kidsday reporters, Newsday

“Perfect for the adolescent set, these inspiring stories mix fun and non-fiction.”—Geeks of Doom
