This is a good book to teach about women’s suffrage. It follows a young girl that has the attitude that she can do anything! She realizes she can do anything but vote! She works hard when she gets older and gets women to vote! ( )

"I could do that," says six-year-old Esther as she watches her mother making tea. Start her own business at the age of nineteen? Why, she could do that, too. But one thing Esther and other women could NOT do was vote. Only men could do that.
With lively text and humorous illustrations as full of spirit as Esther herself, this striking picture book biography shows how one girl's gumption propels her through a life filled with challenges until, in 1869, she wins the vote for women in Wyoming Territory – the first time ever in the United States!

Esther Morris is not a historical figure with whom I was familiar. This book tells of her unusual trajectory of life for a woman of her time. Esther's story is simply told and easy to follow. The illustrations enhance the story line and provide a colorful narrative to accompany the text. From helping to raise a family of eleven children to winning the vote for women in the Wyoming Territory, Esther Morris' story has a place alongside the stories of other more famous suffragists.

This would be a good book to add to a study of Wyoming history. It would be a good book to include in a study of women's rights in America. It would also be a good book to look at when studying the genesis of Constitutional Amendments and voting. ( )

This was a non-fiction book about Esther Morris's influences on womens' rights. The author informs readers about what a determined person Esther Morris was and how this helped women get the right to vote. The author wrote this book appropriately for the intended audiences' reading level. The illustrations are very colorful. I would read this book when discussing womens' rights or important women in America. ( )

I liked this book for many reasons. The big idea of this story is to be strong and stand up for what you believe in. First, this biography book has a great plot. The character, Esther McQuigg, faces numerous conflicts as she stands up for what she believes in as a woman. She goes against the social norms of the public opinion, such as opening a business as a young lady, stopping people who threatened to stop anti-slave meetings, and fighting for the right to vote as a female. There is a lot of tension and suspense in this book as Esther faces all kinds of challenges. The ultimate challenge being when Esther goes to vote while there were people opposing her. On the last page, the tension is resolved as the text says, “Esther help up her hand. 'I can do this,' she said. And she did.” The character development of Esther McQuigg flows from the beginning to the end very smoothly. At the beginning of the biography, it shows Esther as a young child who would want to mimic her mother and faced challenges by saying, “I could do that.” As the story slowly shares all of the conflicts Esther goes through as she ages, it is shown that Esther becomes stronger in overcoming adversities.
