"The text, informative without overwhelming, is extended by an author's note describing some of Ginsburg's actual court cases...From cover to cover, a lovingly made volume that succeeds on every level. A beautiful example of what a picture book can be."
"A valuable and moving account of a woman who...has herself become a symbol of justice in America."
— Publishers Weekly
"The illustrations, rendered in gouache, ink, and Photoshop, illuminate the text with humor and sophistication...An excellent addition to “Mighty Girl” collections!"
— School Library Journal
"Innerst’s digital gouache-and-ink illustrations are as matter-of-fact as the text, clearly offering up facts that showcase what Ruth faced throughout her life. A smart, sometimes biting biography that proves it’s never too early to start teaching kids about justice."
"The muted tones of the illustrations, rendered in gouache, ink, and Photoshop, complement the text."
