"I love these books--and so will upper elementary readers. Graphic novel conceits are well integrated with a diverse cast of characters. Subject-area content feels organic and the back-matter adds to--rather than waters down--the narratives. The recurring characters, Spanish-language, vocabulary support, and clear parallel structure between the books in a series will engage avid and struggling readers alike. I can't wait to see what's next!"
—Dr. Wendy Stephens, Assistant Professor of Library Media, Jacksonville State University


"Z is for Zeitgeist?' I always check the z entry of an alphabet book first, and was I surprised when I looked at the last letter in D is for Democracy! The use of the term 'zeitgeist' puts a brilliant cap on this look at the fundamental rights and responsibilities of living in a democracy. Yes, it's an ABC book, but one with a solid commitment to democratic ideals and the belief that, as stated in 'Q is for Questions' that 'Taking part in a democracy is every citizen's task.'"
—Walter Mayes (Author of Valerie & Walter's Best Books for Children)
