Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This is an inspiring, in-depth biography of a feminist crusader who worked tirelessly for a future where a woman could be "her own individual self," fully equal with men. Because Susan B. Anthony led multiple lives as an activist, the book is information heavy. The photos, illustrations, and sidebars provide good breaks in the text, as readers can see photos of the people Anthony was working alongside, copies of posters for her meetings, and explanations of things like paternalism and a woman's role in 19th-century America. But readers who aren't history fans or who are looking for a quick read may be easily overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people, dates, and events.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
