Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book provides a very attractive presentation of the women suffrage movement for younger readers. The author's clear prose delineates the main events of the movement, and the pictures help enliven the time period and the women involved in the movement. At the end of the book is a short timeline, as well as a glossary, a listing of relevant Internet sites, and other helpful information. This book will make an important contribution to young girls' understanding of the struggles of women to bring about social change. 2003, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 10.
