Descriere

2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment! An essential election read and early introduction to the concepts of organizing, protests, and demonstration.

A story of hope and determination, Marching with Aunt Susan reminds readers that society cannot evolve unless people―even young people―dare to take a stand. Perfect for girl-power readers!

“Inspiring and revelatory.” ―Kirkus Reviews

All Bessie wants is to go hiking with her father and brothers. But it’s 1896, and girls don’t get to hike. They can’t vote either, which Bessie discovers when Susan B. Anthony comes to town to help lead the campaign for women’s suffrage.

Stirred to action, Bessie joins the movement and discovers that small efforts can result in small changes―and maybe even big ones.

Inspired by the diary of the real-life Bessie Keith Pond, a ten-year-old girl who lived in California during the suffrage campaign, author Claire Rudolf Murphy and illustrator Stacey Schuett offer a thought-provoking introduction to the fight for women’s rights.

    Although this is not a book that I would voluntarily read or be interested in, I think it is a great historical text. To begin with, I like that towards the last few pages of the book, the author Claire Rudolf Murphy added a couple pages about what the entire storyline is about and extra information that could help the reader either before or after reading the book. “Marching with Aunt Susan is based on actual events in the 1896 campaign… The story is my chance to march with Aunt Susan and to thank her, Bessie, Aunt Mary, and the hundreds of thousands of women who won the vote for me and for you.” The next reason why I think it is a good book is because it takes a very historical period of time in the past and creates a wonderful story that can take you through the past to learn what was going on. It represents the struggles of women suffrage back in the day and the difficulties that women and girls had to overcome. “Men decide everything. They even decide if we should get to vote. Men decide how the children are raised. Men decide how the household money is spent.” Lastly, I liked this book because of the colorful and beautiful illustrations that are water-colored on each page. I think that the colors and the illustrations enhance the story as well. The main idea of this book is to learn about the campaign for womens suffrage and how Susan B. Anthony played a huge role in it. Bessie the main character of the book realizes that there are a lot of things that girls cannot do that boys can, such as hiking and voting, and although suffrage did not succeed, the book ends on a happy and hopeful note with a symbol of freedom!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The illustrations were absolutely beautiful. This is a very important story that many children should read, especially young girls. It talks about a few of the things that Susan B. Anthony did for women's rights. The story is told from a young girl's perspective. Many young readers will be able to relate to this story because young girl's were not able to attend school. Most families thought that only their sons should be able to get an education. Being a female myself, I can't imagine not being able to get an education just because of my sex. I would read this to a class when discussing women's rights, or the amendments.

    Woman's rights have come a long way and we are still not where it needs to be. Girls school age and on can relate to this book and understand the history of where they are now. The book is a perfect teaching tool, for the admendents or just suffrage in general. A must read for all students. The illustrations paired with the book are perfect to caught the emotion going on at this time.

    Good introduction for young readers about Susan B. Anthony and the women's suffrage movement.

    I thought this was an interesting book to say the least. I was rocky at first with looking at the pictures and thought it was going to be boring. Once I started to read the text, I became more engaged. The illustrations went right along with the plot and really brought the story to life. The illustrator really took their time with the tiniest details as you can see on the last two pages. She did not just make the hill a hill, she made it look like a tree was on it as well.The message of this story was to show how Aunt Susan stood up for Women's rights and fought for equality between men and women.
