    " A "light" read about Elizabeth Cady Stanton - as important as she was in the women's movement - too light; I think young readers could handle more. Author gets the point across - but missing details like dates and places could have been part of the book. I wasn't "moved" by the text. If teachers are going to use this, I would read aloud the Author's Note first. "

    " I love this book!! It tells the story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and how she fought for women's right to vote. It is such a powerful story and a wonderfully written picture book that would be a great read aloud. It goes through her life from when she is a little girl to when she dies, and looks at many events in her life that are now apart of history. It is interesting to see how the people of her time reacted to her boldness! This story would be great to use when teaching about the 19th Ammendment in fourth grade, or in any other grade to teach about change agents! "

    " Great book for elementary aged students! This book holds valuable information in language that is easy to understand. I think that it is very important for students to be introduced to biographies at a very young age or they will think that biographies are just boring books that are full of boring facts; which isn't true! This book has beautiful illustrations that will keep the elementary aged student interested.This book also hold an important lesson that students need to learn - fight for your freedom! Students need to learn at a young age that they are capable of reforming things and changing the government systems that they don't agree with. Also, they need to learn that the right to vote (especially for women and minorities) is a privilege! They should appreciate this right and take full advantage of it. I definitely recommend this book! "

    " Loved this retelling of the awesome story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton...I also loved how the author was very descriptive about Mr. Stanton and how he took his wife's ideas seriously. I think there are lots of 'teachable moments' here for boys and girls alike. "
