The french publisher of the book, Marie-Pierre Gracedieu described the book as a good guide for parents of the girl-child.

“When I read Dear Ijeawele, I felt an urge to share it with many friends, women and men, who had become parents of a girl in the recent years. Then I started to feel it had to be read by parents of boys too. And thereafter by everyone of us to investigate our own education, and try to overcome a few inherited clichés.” She said
