"The text does ably capture a decisive Goldie, and what's especially fun here is the artwork, particularly the images of the girls - a nest of almost doll-like figures."
-- Booklist

"This is a lovely addition to the biography shelf for the youngest readers" 
-- starred review, Jewish Book World

"it is a pleasure to find this new release for very young children relating a specific incident in the life of young Golda Meir. Many little girls will find a kindred spirit in the story of Golda Mabowehz, a take-charge kind of kid"
-- Jewish Journal

"A solid choice for read-alouds, it could spark discussions about service learning, immigration, leadership, and inspiring female role models. Goldie's strong voice comes through, and the conversational tone makes it accessible for readers." 
-- School Library Journal
