Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-This biography presents Anthony as a lifelong advocate for women's equality, from childhood awareness through adult activism. Hopkinson recounts her subject's birth into a Quaker family, her education, her teaching career at a boarding school, and her return home to Rochester, NY, in order to work for change. Anthony's friendships with abolitionists and her family's participation in the Underground Railroad are briefly mentioned. Soft-edged illustrations complement the simple yet accurate text that informs emergent and reluctant readers of both the historical context and lasting importance of Anthony's contributions to the suffrage movement. With a clear vocabulary and an appealing presentation, this title makes an accessible introduction.-Julie R. Ranelli, Kent Island Branch Library, Stevensville, MD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
