A fun, inspiring story about suffragists that I hadn't heard before. This book tells the story in a simple, easy-to-follow way, which is delightfully and vibrantly illustrated. The end pages offer even more in-depth info on the long path to women winning the right to vote in America--and I again learned several new facts. Overall, a well-researched book that makes learning enjoyable.
