Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Elizabeth Cady Stanton proved that perseverance and patience accomplish great things. She spent most of her life working hard to change laws that many people told her would never be changed. Elizabeth believed that women should have the same rights as men. She lobbied endlessly for women's suffrage. In addition to raising a large family, she wrote speeches and books, traveled and gave speeches, and organized numerous petitions. This book is arranged as a graphic novel. The illustrations accurately portray life in the nineteenth century and the characters' dialog support and supplement the story. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was an influential historical figure and the highlights of her inspirational story are presented here in an easy-to-read and entertaining format. The appendix provides tools for further information. This title is part of the "Graphic Library: Graphic Biographies" series. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
