Product description


One of Nonfiction Detective’s Best Nonfiction Books of 2018


“[A] valuable addition to the selection of children’s books featuring women in history.” --Canadian Children’s Book News

“This beautifully illustrated account of Dr. S. Josephine Baker's work in New York City is an excellent introduction to an inspiring woman whose public health reforms in New York City saved the lives of 90 000 children and formed the basis for public health programs across the United States.”  -- CM Magazine
