FREEDOM HEROINES: ONE MOVEMENT, SIX BIOS by Frieda Wishinsky. Scholastic, 2013.
Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Jane Addams, Ida B. Wells, Alice Paul, and Rosa Parks are each featured in short biographies about their contributions to freedom. This is a good book to show kids the features of nonfiction texts: call out boxes, illustrations, subheadings, etc. Tie it to FREEDOM'S CHILDREN by Ellen Levine, CLAUDETTE COLVIN: TWICE TOWARD JUSTICE by Philip Hoose, and WE'VE GOT A JOB TO DO among others.
