Product description


“Offers its readers a poignantly lively picture book that expressly reveals the power and freedom found in words for women across the world. How great a treat it will be to read this book in a grandmother’s lap. Highly Recommended.” ― CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“A moving story about family, women and the power of education―when Aaji learns to spell her name you’ll want to dance along with her.” ―
Here Wee Read blog

“Joy is evident on the page―and infectious...A spirited book about gender, age, rights, and the importance of education.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

“Gorgeous…Colors are crisp and contemporary…Provides a surprising angle to the growing body of children’s books about gender inequality and the continued work of pioneers like Aaji.” ―

"The connection between the little girl and the grandmother is the touching heart of this story." ―
Canadian Children's Book News

“A wonderful and poignant story about the need for literacy and how vital learning to read is.” ―
