Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- A book with a positive, upbeat tone. The daughter of a minister who instilled in her the need to work hard and have high aspirations, Edelman today is the founder and head of the Children's Defense Fund. As with most brief biographies, this one presents the facts but has little depth about the woman's character and achievements. Few details are offered, and major episodes are covered in a few sentences. However, it is still a worthy book, providing an attractive introduction, arranged in readable chapters. The black-and-white and full-color photographs are of good quality and include scenes that help define the national atmosphere during Edelman's life. An inspiring story. --Marilyn Long Graham, Lee County Library System, Fort Myers, FL
