Overview

   Lucretia Mott is a genuine and underacknowledged heroine of America's early years, a woman of fierce integrity and quiet strength who played a critical role in both the anti-slavery and the woman's rights movements. In a book that combines an engaging human story with scrupulous historical research, Dorothy Sterling brings Mott to life for young readers.

   The daughter of a Nantucket sea captian, Lucreatia Mott exhibited, from her earliest years, an extraordinary confidence and eloquence. As an adult, she dared to speak out to all-white, all-male audiences when women were treated as second-class citizens. She refused to be silenced when she was attacked by protestors or when meeting halls where her organizations were to gather were burned down. In her later years, Mott became an advisor to presidents and a colleague to such activists as William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, and Sojourner Truth. She was one of the most longstanding, respected, and effective voices in the movements she had helped to pioneer.

Biography of the nineteenth-century New England woman who was the Quaker daughter of a Nantucket sea captain and who fought for the abolition of slavery and for women's rights.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- This lively and affectionate picture book continues the adventures of Josephina, first introduced in Josephina, the Great Collector (Morrow, 1988) . This time, the irrepressible alligator child wonders why she was saddled with such an ugly name. Then Grandma tells the story of her own feisty sister--named Josephina--who inspired her to courage and adventure. Engel's ink-and-watercolor illustrations are bursting with energy, drama, and delightful details of the alligators' home life. Josephina is a believable and completely realized child; her green alligator skin makes her more universally human than if she were shown as a girl of any particular race or class. Fortunately, Grandma's words do not solve things; instead they provide the stuff of fantasies and dreams that allows Josephina to leap time and distance to identify with her great-aunt. The story is rich with an understanding of the importance that family members have in each other's lives, whether they live in the same house or are separated by generations and continents. The pride that Josephina takes in her name at the end is genuine. This funny, insightful, and heart-warming book is perfect for reading aloud. --Carolyn Polese, Gateway Community School, Arcata, Calif.
