Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- This book is to biography what fast food is to restaurants--sometimes a necessity but one that leaves you still hungry and unsatisfied. It is written from Low's point of view as a child in Savannah, Georgia in the late 1800s and quickly moves through her youth to her eventual founding of the Girl Scouts. All of this is given in a scant 24 pages, only 12 of which are devoted to print. Each facing page features dull black and blue line drawings with no particular appeal (and which, at a World Camp of Girl Scouts, depicts just one black girl and no Asians). A very light, slight snack. --Louise M. Zuckerman, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
