Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution, passed in June 1919 and ratified in 1920, gives women the right to vote. Taken for granted today, it was only a dream in the early 1800s. Part of the "People at the Center Of" series, this book chronicles a group of women at the heart of social change in America. Countless independent, courageous women join the reform movements that were beginning to move across the country in the 1830s. Temperance societies urged men to give up alcohol. Abolitionists struggled to end slavery. And women everywhere become more politically active in hopes of improving their status. Their actions were not without repercussions, however. Strangers, and even family and friends, ridiculed and scorned the women because of their public protests. But even this did not stop them. Women from all walks of life continued to define the critical issues. Sojourner Truth, a former slave, could not read or write. Nevertheless, she dared to speak out of her own experience. "Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted and gathered into barns." She doesn't stop there. "I could work as much and eat as much as a man—when I could get it—and bear the lash as well! And ain't I a woman?" This book is useful as an introductory text about the facts of women's suffrage. It provides significant highlights leading to landmark constitutional change and offers a closing chronology of people and dates. Bibliographic references aid classroom and individual study. 2004, Blackbirch Press/The Gale Group, Ages 8 to 12.
—Francine Thomas
School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-These titles focus more on the people involved in historical movements than on the events. Each book begins with an overview of its topic and then transitions into one- to two-page biographies that highlight each person's contributions. Kops provides a bit more background information than Orr does. Featuring reformers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony, the profiles clearly explain the role each played in the women's rights movement. Photographs and paintings appear throughout, often depicting these women in action. Orr presents an easy-to-understand account of the conflicts leading up to the hysteria surrounding the events in Salem. Beginning with two 15th-century German priests who wrote a book about identifying and hunting witches, the author introduces Cotton Mather, Tituba, Rebecca Nurse, and others. While the text explains the origin of the accusations and the backgrounds of the accused, it does not address all of the questions surrounding the Puritans' frenzied fear of witches. The well-chosen pictures exhibit the emotional anguish attached to the events. The simplicity of the writing makes both books perfect for introductory reading, or for reluctant readers.-Julie Webb, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
