Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Girl power, indeed! This book lays out the trials and tribulations that led to the passage of our 21st amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Following the history of female voting rights, the book begins with a look back at the legal and democratic situation in colonial times, follows women as they begin to agitate for equal rights at the voting booth, and traces the victories and defeats of the suffrage movement from the first Women's Rights Convention in 1848 through the Civil War, the splitting of the movement into two factions, the temperance movement, the passage of the 19th amendment, and the evolution of women in government since that day, from Geraldine Ferraro to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. Very accessible to this generation of tech-savvy kids, the book uses short paragraphs interspersed with cartoon illustrations that are complete with irreverent comments in the cartoon bubbles. As all good non-fiction titles should, the text includes a table of contents, timeline, glossary, bibliography, and access to safe internet sites. Part of the "Cartoon Nation" series and written at a grade 3 and 4 reading level, this book is sure to appeal to hip, young readers tired of stuffy, boring old history books. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
