From School Library Journal
"Little Leaders will undoubtedly inspire a new generation of high achievers."―Shelf Awareness
"Beautifully designed and chock-full of information, this is a fantastic survey of black women who made and continue to make history."―School Library Journal
"This book just begs to be picked up.... Purely magical. Perfect for exploring together at bedtime or for children to browse independently, a gorgeous invitation for children of all backgrounds, and especially for black girls, to learn about black women who were pioneers."―Kirkus Reviews
"If you want your young reader to have some insight into the role that black women played in the history of this country, this is the perfect gift."―NBC News
"Harrison's book focuses on great black women, and it's lovely to see Lorna Simpson and Gwen Ifill ascend to the ranks of Marian Anderson and Bessie Coleman. Harrison wants readers to imagine themselves in such august company; her adorable illustrations depict all of these figures as a little black girl, an everygirl, in a variety of costumes and backdrops."―New York Times Book Review
"This appealing book reminds young readers that every great leader began as a little leader, taking their first steps towards something big."―A Mighty Girl
"With darling illustrations and short, easy to read biographies, the book is perfect for children and the young at heart."―Upworthy

I love it. I hope to see more from Vashti Harrison soon.
I included an example of what each Bio page is like. So cute and beautiful and easy to read!
I tried to start at the beginning, but we haven't yet talked about slavery and I shudder to explain its horrors to my precious little girl, so I decided to start at the back (Dominique Dawes, gymnast). This reverse historical order seems to resonate well with a young child.
I like the encyclopedic style, with each narrative standing on its own. There is enough said about each woman's childhood to which a little girl can connect.
Excellent work! We are proud to have this addition to our home library. Thank you, Vashti.
I was thoroughly pleased with what I seen, so much I copped one for the homie and his daughter. If you purchase this book, you will not be disappointed.
There have been only two things I have preordered in the past five years: J. Cole - For Your Eyes Only and this book. So far 2 for 2 on this preorder tip!

I own it as an adult and bought many as Christmas gifts for children.
They are empowering, educational and colourful.
A much needed piece of literature in black history to inform and empower us all. Its brilliant!
This book done a fantastic job of high lighting the positive attibutes of black women who stood up strong and fought for what they believed in.
The racism that many of them experienced back in the days would have been unbearable. But reading about their stories in this book made me feel proud to be a black woman and not to allow anybody to stop me from going after what I desire.
Also, I’m a big fan of Vashi Harrison’s illustrations so it was the perfect purchase!
