Praise For…


Praise for If You Lived During the Civil War:

"Younger readers...will be well served."--Kirkus

Praise for If You Traveled on the Underground Railroad:

"Wilkins highlights the heroic achievements of conductors of African descent . . . A fiery and inspiring look at a pivotal period in U.S. history."--Kirkus

Praise for If You Lived During the Plimoth Thanksgiving;

"A welcome addition to the picture book history collection. ...The text does a remarkable job of giving larger context to the complexity of Indigenous life prior to colonization...This essential book should replace many established titles on the shelf." --School Library Journal (starred review)

"A measured corrective to pervasive myths about what is often referred to as the "first Thanksgiving." ...The lens Newell offers is a Native one, describing how the Wampanoag and other Native peoples received the English rather than the other way around. ...Essential." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
