Praise For The Big, Bold, Adventurous Life of Lavinia Warren

“Lavinia Warren was a remarkable woman who lived in an era when careers and world travel were extremely unusual among her gender, let alone for a woman so tiny. Her size never limited her aspirations, nor her curiosity about the world. Elizabeth Raum has deftly woven Warren’s fascinating personal story with the events and people of the American Civil War in ways that will surely engage young readers and connect them with history.” —ADRIENNE SAINT-PIERRE curator of the Barnum Museum


“A captivating and astounding story about a confident woman who traveled the world, embracing life and proving that our differences can indeed unite us. Lavinia Warren is an inspiration and a delight. I adored this book!”—SARAH MARSH author of Thomas Paine and the Dangerous Word


“A fun, interesting, and rare look into the life of one extraordinary woman during a very tumultuous time in American
history.”—JENNIFER SWANSON author of Pearl Harbor, part of the American Girl: Real Stories from My Time series


"A book worth reading…so absorbing." —Ms. Yingling Reads


"An unreservedly recommended addition to family, elementary school, and community library biography collections." —Midwest Book Review
