Critic Reviews

"Whatever the circumstances, each vignette reflects a strong sense of hope. Lawlor's handpainted paper collages are equally powerful." (Publishers Weekly)

"This is an affecting little book that should help all of us remember the grit and hope that formed our nation." (Children's Literature)
