This is just about perfect for a nonfiction picture book biography. It has the perfect amount of text per page, giving plenty of detail while not overwhelming with information. The illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers match the text perfectly and make me feel like I know and understand who each character is. I especially love the expressions on the characters' faces! Also, there is a short but very informative author's note at the end.

I learned a lot from reading this - just enough that I wanted to learn more so I read a bit about the history of women's suffrage online. I knew that Utah was one of the earliest places to allow women the vote, but I hadn't realized that Wyoming was the very first place in the world to give its women the vote!
