Reviews: Elijah Lovejoy's Fight for Freedom

May 2020 Update: A new edition of this biography is in development for release by late summer. Pre-order details will be posted as soon as possible. Or sign up for my alerts to be notified.​ I will refresh these materials as well. 

Received AD rating from Puget Sound Council For Reviewing Children's Media for meeting library standards, being relevant and interesting, and good for filling specific collection needs. 

​​"This is an intriguing biography on a little known hero in history." ​
- KidsBookshelf Newsletter, March 19, 2010

"I really enjoyed your book. Like all the best children's books, it's for adults, too. Lovejoy's story is too important to disappear from public view. You are helping to keep that from happening."
​- William G. Chrystal, Lovejoy scholar, author of Hamilton by the Slice: Falling in Love With Our Most Influential Founding Father​

​This "is a great little book for children and adults alike, even though it is geared towards younger readers. For those interested in the fascinating life of Elijah P. Lovejoy, Jennifer Phillips’ Elijah Lovejoy’s Fight For Freedom is a great place to start." ​
- Andrew W. Griffin, editor, Red Dirt Report. Read the full review.

"Ms. Phillips does a good job in providing background and information in a manner acceptable to the younger reader. I liked the way Ms. Phillips interspersed quotes and illustrations. It is important to provide extra stimulus to keep the interest of the younger reader, particularly in subjects like history."
