Praise For Miss Moore Thought Otherwise

"This makes an ideal addition to women's history units."
Booklist

"A must for school and public libraries and those who love them."
Kirkus

"[An] easygoing picture-book biography."
Horn Book

"A concise, breezy chronology. Atwell's folk-art style acrylics capture a sense of history in the making, as well as the book's themes of excitement and change."
