Is It Any Good?

While the book is pretty long-winded for your average preschooler, the story is interesting enough that older kids and preschoolers with strong attention spans will want to listen until the end. Molly's strong convictions are inspiring, and her colloquial, descriptive narrative makes it an especially easy and pleasant read-aloud.

The grainy, detailed illustrations successfully capture the sense of the dusty, wide-open prairie, and the muted oranges and greens enhance the old-fashioned feel of the story.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
