Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Hadley Hooper. Based on actual newspaper accounts, this lively picture book chronicles a journey of two courageous women; Nell Richardson and Alice Burke encountered snowstorms, rough roads, and more while driving from New York to California in 1916 to campaign for women's voting rights. The cheery, appropriately old-fashioned illustrations, filled with suffragette yellow, help tell this little-known story, just one of many remarkable suffrage efforts. Reading list.
