Reviews of Julie Black Belt
"[Julie Black Belt's] exuberant digital illustrations show Julie's journey from enthusiastic beginner to struggling novice to poised and confident student who earns her yellow belt...youngsters interested in the sport will be thrilled to follow Julie's adventures. Other readers may also learn something from Julie's determination to meet her goals"
- School Library Journal
"This is a great book for girls (or boys!) who are interested in martial arts. The message is practice and hard work get results and that applies to most things in life."
"I would recommend this book for any martial arts student (or potential student) as a way to show the reality of martial arts and the pride one can have for EARNING a yellow belt, instead of being handed a black belt."
