Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-A straightforward, readable biography that concentrates on Sanger's work promoting birth control. Whitelaw discusses her subject's childhood and early influences; marriage and children; work as a nurse and midwife; contraceptive research; her pamphlets, papers, magazines, and books; the Brownsville Clinic trials; her divorce and remarriage; and her involvement in Planned Parenthood, both in the U.S. and abroad. The author begins each chapter with bits of trivia-events, people, inventions-that made news during each period of Sanger's life. There are no source notes. The book is illustrated with attractive black-and-white photographs, most of which are portraits. A worthwhile purchase.-Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA

Ordered this up from the library not knowing it was written for middle school age children. As such, many of the racier details of Sanger's life are glossed over or omitted, but it does give a broad foundation as to why she was an important historical figure, and what her accomplishments were. There are also some nice quality photos and reprints of some of her handbills.
