Product Details


“An appealing snapshot of rough-hewn life”—Kirkus Reviews
“Lizzie’s homey narration not only reveals the depths of family bonds and what it means to work together, but it also walks young readers through the labor-intensive process of doing laundry in days of yore. . . . Graceful pencil and watercolor illustrations include historically accurate details while the soft palette captures the warmth and love between the two workers.”—Booklist
“Delightful, child-friendly details ground a warm story featuring wonderful, authentic interactions between Lizzie and her Grandma while offering a fascinating look at doing laundry long ago.”—Cooperative Children’s Book Center Choices
“the pencil and watercolor illustrations aptly evoke the 1889 setting. Plenty of old-fashioned, pioneer-life details are woven into the text.”—The Horn Book
