Praise for We Are Water Protectors:
"This book will both educate and inspire youth." --School Library Journal
"Goade's watercolor illustrations fill the spreads with streaming ribbons of water, cosmic backdrops, and lush natural landscapes.... Lindstrom's spare, poetic text flows with the "river's rhythm. Written in response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, famously protested by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe--and others--these pages carry grief, but it is overshadowed by hope in what is an unapologetic call to action." --starred review, Booklist (https://bookshop.org/books/we-are-water-protectors/9781250203557)
Praise for The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate:
"The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate is the most delightful historical novel for tweens in many, many years. . . . Callie's struggles to find a place in the world where she'll be encouraged in the gawky joys of intellectual curiosity are fresh, funny, and poignant today." --The New Yorker, Book Bench section
"Interwoven with the scientific theme are threads of daily life in a large family--the bonds with siblings, the conversations overheard, the unspoken understandings and misunderstandings--all told with wry humor and a sharp eye for details that bring the characters and the setting to life. The eye-catching jacket art, which silhouettes Callie and images from nature against a yellow background, is true to the period and the story. Many readers will hope for a sequel to this engaging, satisfying first novel." --Booklist, Starred Review (https://bookshop.org/books/the-evolution-of-calpurnia-tate/9780312659301)
