Review

Praise for Turning Pages:

★ "A sincere and insightful autobiography that also demonstrates the power of the written word. A winning addition to libraries that serve young readers." --School Library Journal, starred review

"A personal and appealing book made to inspire." --Booklist

"A thoughtful introduction to both the power of reading and an inspiring role model." --Kirkus Reviews

"This book would be great as a read-aloud for class discussions of the Supreme Court, or United States government, or of important people in public service. It would also be good for independent reading by students interested in biographies or political figures." --School Library Connection
