" Which Side Are You On? is beautiful, lyrical, and important, subtly showing us the importance of music and -- even better -- how anyone can make a difference, no matter their circumstances, as long as they put their heart and soul into it. A treasure." -- Silas House, author of Eli the Good
"A high-stakes account of grace under pressure." -- Publishers Weekly
"Cardinale's digitally colored scratchboard art is dynamic. [... ] Given that many of the same [labor] conditions exist today, only changed by mechanization, the music and lyrics included may well find use in the current generation. Lyon has given today's readers a stirring story." -- Kirkus
"Lyon and Cardinale make a perfect match for this picture-book homage to a 1931 rallying cry born under duress in Harlan County, KY. [... ] Although this book describes a historical event, it can open a gateway to understanding terms such as 'collective bargaining, ' what that right has meant, and to consider what it means today." -- Shelf Awareness
"The story has real power and so do the best of the illustrations." -- Booklist
"The story is a good and important one, and it is well told for an elementary-school audience. [... ] Cardinale's folksy, woodcut-style paintings include several memorable images." -- The New York Times
"What a perfect time for this picture book's arrival. [... ] 'Which Side Are You On?' is an old song with new relevance for a generation facing a dubious future." -- New York Journal of Books
