Would you DARE to bare your underwear? If you like CLOTHES and people with the courage to SKIRT conventions and address injustice then Amelia Bloomer and her unFITTING ideas will charm the PANTS off you!

Amelia Bloomer, a rebellious reformer and early women's rights activist, invented bloomers (baggy pantaloons worn with a short skirt over them), thus liberating women from the dangerous and oppressive clothing of the mid-nineteenth century. Here is her story, told in buoyant, witty text and beautiful, high styled-illustrations.

Amelia Bloomer did not like the way the traditional things were in America. She wanted a revolution for women also. She did not like the way the dresses were black in her day so she changed it. The towns people wanted the women to continue dressing the traditional way. But did it?

A fantastic book with beautiful illustrations! Honestly, I was not sure who Amelia Bloomer was before I read this book, but I soon discovered she was a women's rights activist. The book informs the reader of different ideals that Amelia had and how she implement her opinions. It would be a great book to use in a social studies class that was learning about the women's rights movement. It is written for young readers, but it is appropriate for all ages. I really enjoyed reading and learning from this book.

Amelia Bloomer, a driving force in the Women's Rights Movement, discovers the freedom of wearing a type of pantaloon under a shorter skirt, later coined "Bloomers." This lead the way to us now being able to so freely wear pants.

As a teacher, I used this book during our local studies unit since Amelia Bloomer lived in our city. It's a great book to use if you're looking for a fun way to interest kids in biographies. The author writes in an appealing style that keeps the listener's attention.

I printed the cover of this yet to be released book and showed it to my second graders. Then I asked them to make predictions about the book. Not knowing what bloomers are, I got some hilarious guesses!! Now they can't wait to read this book during Women's History Month!! I can't wait to read this book that has already received starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist!!
