" I love true stories of great spirit. Just ended too abruptly for me. " said.

" Best of 2015. A bit clunky at times, but full of hope and worth. Great message for our children. Pictures are ok. " said.

" Universal education is more powerful than we, as Americans, realized! The quality of a public education is the mark of a nations greatness. " said.

" Beautiful story with a great message about the importance of education and helping others. " said.

" A moving autobiography about a little girl who grew up in Rhodesia where she taught herself to read from her brother's school books. She worked very hard and eventually gained an education in the US. It's a picture book elevated by Gilchrist's gorgeous illustrations. " said.

" A picture book memoir about how a young woman pursued her education in Zimbabwe, continued to dream of higher education, and then succeed in getting her PhD in the United States. Love the "Dear Reading" and Afterword at the end of this book along with the photographs. " said.

" Beautiful moving story. The fact that its a true story makes it so significant and moving. This book is a must read. I would share this book to my class to empower my girls and make all of my students thankful for the opportunities they have. " said.

" A very inspiring biography of an African woman who dreamed of an education, despite being told that it was more important for girls to cook and clean and take care of their children. I'm not sure students would pick this up on their own, but it could be used as a classroom or library read aloud to talk about the power of education and different experiences around the world. " said.
