Great new book!

Kerrie Logan Hollihan brings the women's suffrage movement to life in the informative and inspiring Rightfully Ours – How Women Won the Vote. Throughout the book, Hollihan weaves a clear and fascinating picture of the times, culture, and historical events behind the struggle. Against this context, she tells the stories of the heroic women who fought the battle for equality: Lucy Stone, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, and many others. These surprisingly intimate portraits make the women of the movement real and relevant for today's young readers. A wealth of illustrations and photographs supplement the text. The book also includes a good mix of appealing activities designed to help kids understand the times and relate to the suffragists. Highly recommended! You can get it from Amazon
