A different time...a different place...What if you were there? This facinating book is making its trade debut just in time for Women's History Month and the 2008 presidential campaign season.

There was a time that girls and women in the United States could not: wear pants; play sports on a team; ride a bicycle; or go to college.

This is the kind of book that made me angry, but not at the book itself: it absolutely baffles me that it took so long to achieve such basic rights, for women to be treated as full-fledged people.

Reading with London and Brooklyn: If this book had a bibliography, it would be just perfect. Great tone, fine facts, nice illustrations: without being preachy or mean to men, Kamma lets people know that things were not right, and that it took and takes a great deal of work to get things moving in the progressive direction.

This is a great and easy to read history book. It could be pared with a lesson on researching. It includes great historical figures and once again teaches about false gender roles. I would definitely make this available for female students to read and become inspired.

GREAT book about the struggle for women's rights. I learned a lot of interesting facts from this book and I considered myself somewhat knowledgeable already. I would highly recommend!
