    " Very good portrayal of Booker T. Washington's immense desire to learn. The illustrations are a combinations of collage and watercolor. An illustrator's note at the end of the book further explains some of the illustrations and worth reading to be sure to catch the significance of some of the illustrations. An excellent choice for schools with units on Booker T. Washington. "

    " Booker T. Washington's drive to read, to learn, to succeed, and to share those opportunities with others is portrayed effectively. The concluding pages point out that he was dismissed for years as too accommodating but has more recently been recognized as a fearless and tireless advocate for equality and justice. "

    " Gorgeously illustrated, powerful, spare text and stunning design. Sure hope the Caldecott Committee is looking at this one long and hard. I loved everything about this one from its heft through the feel of the paper, the story of hope and strength. Just beautiful "

    " I like my Kindle a lot. However, when a GORGEOUS book like this comes along with raised lettering in the title, deep, rich colors, script running through the stern portrait of Booker T. Washington, I KNOW books can never be replaced. This biography for children can't be missed. Collier's illustrations are captivating (he illustrated two other favorites of mine, Dave the Potter and Rosa), and Asim's inspiring biography teaches children that with determination and drive, anything can be accomplished. Extra facts, a timeline, and author and illustrator notes at the end should not be overlooked. This is now one of my favorite 2012 picture books. It will definitely win awards! "
