Around America to Win the Vote

We rated this book:


Nell Richardson and Alice Burke were traveling around America to win the right for women to vote. On the way, they did come across some problems. There was a blizzard, a muddy road, and when their map was unclear, they got lost in Arizona. The plot definitely kept my interest. I liked how the author gave small sections of information about separate states, like passing peaceful fields in North Carolina, eating all yellow food in South Carolina, and joining a parade in Georgia. The illustrations were very unrealistic, but they were neat to look at because they were drawn colorfully and brightly. I think the illustrator has an interesting style. It’s fascinating how the author takes information from actual old articles and magazines and turns them into a book. There was not a lot of dialogue, and I would have liked more, but the details about other things made up for it. It’s nice how the author turned history into a fun book, giving little pieces of information that wouldn’t usually be included in a history textbook. I believe that anyone could read this book because it has a captivating topic and attractive illustrations.
