"Ajhar tracks the development of this Common Core–friendly reading preference in comical scenes in which schoolmarmish Lou [No Pirates Allowed Said Library Lou] dances balletically among piles of books as the exaggeratedly humongous pirate grows more and more absorbed in his reading."

"When I was a young boy my history book looked like it was 1,000 pages long and a tough read. Here's a kid's book [D is for Democracy] even an adult can read, enjoy, and learn from, that actually explains democracy so simply and effectively, you mean it when you shout out, 'What a country!'"
—Regis Philbin
 
"As a former school librarian and school librarian of the year for the state of North Carolina, I heartily endorse this book [D is for Democracy]. Not only does it explain our government in simple terms for young children, it also contains excellent facts and ideas for older children that they can use in research or other projects. The illustrations are also wonderful. This book (in multiple copies) should be in every school library in the country!"
—Vicki Stanfield, Moravian Book and Gift Shop
