Miss Moore is getting lots of praise!
"No library-loving child will want to pass this one up."
—New York Times
"A must for school and public libraries and those who love them."
[An] easygoing picture-book biography. . . . A bird’s-eye view of
Miss Moore setting off on her “retirement” travels spreading the
gospel of children’s librarianship across the land clearly places
this apostle in the company of her (fictional) Maine sister,
An ideal addition to women's history units.
"A concise, breezy chronology. Atwell's folk-art style acrylics
capture a sense of history in the making, as well as book's
themes of excitement and change."
"Hard-working librarians and those who are librarians at heart will relish this inspiring, loving tribute to a woman who 'thought otherwise' about a lot of matters and often challenged the status quo."
