" Excellent book on Anne Carroll Moore and her mission to make a space for children in public libraries. Lots of good historical information. Looking forward to sharing this with my class! " said.

" I enjoyed this story about Miss Moore and her vision for children's libraries " said.

" A delightful peek into the early days of children's literature and the birth of youth libraries and librarians. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Anne Carroll Moore and her colleagues, who valued children and their rights to read and visit libraries. " said.

" The text is in small chunks of information and the details are presented more as a story than a listing of what she did. I think children would enjoy reading this for fun while at the same time learning about a part of history that most people know nothing about. " said.

" No one thought children, and especialy girls, had any business in a library. Miss Moore thought otherwise, and helped to creat children's rooms in libraries across the country. A very touching story. Share it with a current or future librarian. " said.

" I harbor a not-so-secret desire to become a librarian. I have a small collection of non-fiction picture books about librarians and this is my latest, very welcome addition. I had never heard of Anne Carroll Moore, but I am eternally grateful for the work she did to encourage children to become readers/ library patrons. " said.

" Though certainly popular with children's librarians everywhere, this book will be enjoyed by anyone interested in women who dared to think for themselves, in a time where such decorum was not always encouraged or appreciated. Not all of Miss Moore's ideas have stood the test of time (she despised Charlotte's Web for example), there's no question that her visionary approach to children's services in libraries pioneered the way for the beautiful spaces we find today. " said.

"I was so excited to read this book, not only because the author is awesome, but also because I didn't know about Anne Carroll Moore and her influence on children's lit even though I have great love for the genre. I am so glad I learned about this amazing woman, and I think it is so great that I learned about her through a children's book. It definitely inspired me to teach my children to "think otherwise." And it challenged me to "think otherwise" on how I can have an impact on the world around me." said.
