The Brave Escape of Edith Wharton
  • The New York Times, “Editor’s Choice”, August 15, 2010
  • American Library Association’s Booklist, STARRED review, Oct. 1, 2010 – “…In this thoroughly researched, humanizing biography, Wooldridge writes with lively specifics about both the author and her time…Wooldridge’s skillful integration of Wharton’s literary and personal lives includes matter-of-fact, detailed accounts of her intense relationships with numerous “bachelor friends,” pictured among the many archival photos.  … [A] well-rounded, handsomely illustrated portrait, which will find an enduring place on classroom and library shelves.”
Just Fine The Way They Are
  • LA Times, June 3, 2011
  • Kirkus Review, February 15, 2011
  • Rutgers University Project on Economics and Children
  • American Library Association’s Booklist, May 1, 2011 – “…shown in nicely composed, often panoramic paintings laced with dramatic and occasionally comical details. The fine, folksy tone of the narration works equally well when relating similar attitudes in the early 1800s and early2000s. Great for discussion, this well-conceived picture book illustrates an interesting point about resistance to new ideas.”
