      Disclaimer: I personally know the author, but I purchased the book myself and chose to review it.See here for entire review.March of the Suffragettes is a short, but important account of the march that women made from New York City to Albany in the pursuit of the right to vote.It has clearly been well-researched and comes off as a very fateful narrative. It does read a little dry at times and I feel that younger readers may get a little bored with the lack of action. Still, it's an important boo [...]

      Loved this! It moved along quickly and highlighted a woman that I knew nothing about, Rosalie Gardiner Jones aka the General and her march for voting rights for women in 1912. It's a short book, more an action story/biography that is fast-paced and could prove more tolerable to teens than some other narrative nonfiction books about the voting rights movement. It's especially exciting for Albany area teens who see Jones' trek through areas they know as she marched from New York City to Albany in [...]

    3. Kelly on said:

      This follows the march Rosalie Gardiner Jones and a handful of fellow women took from the Bronx to Albany for women's rights. It's an interesting story and Jack does a good job of doing that -- telling the story. But that's all there really is to it; it's a story about the march. There's nothing much here with depth, and there's certainly no exploration of the role of the suffragettes or what the limits of their fight was for (i.e nothing at all about it being all white women and why that was). [...]

      E ARC from EdelweissI need more books on this topic, but this was not formatted in a way that will be appealing to my students. It was very wordy, had few pictures, and had some odd turns of phrase. Will keep looking.

    5. Melissa Whiting on said:

      This book had some interesting facts and information, but was not a thrilling read. Rather, it read a bit too much like a 150-page school essay.

    6. Cheriee Weichel on said:

      I wanted to love this book, but honestly, it just didn't work for me. I wanted to be inspired, but it just became tedious to read this. It is both wordy and dry. I couldn't connect to these women and the cause because of this. I thought that maybe today, when the USA votes for a woman who could become president, I might find motivation. But honestly, it I have to work this hard, it isn't the kind of book that students will engage in.

      Featured in "Historical Nonfiction Books for Young Readers" on Intellectual Recreation. In 1912 Rosalie Jones organized a march in support of Women's Suffrage from New York City to the state capitol in Albany. Incredibly, she and two other women took only two weeks to walk the entire 175 miles, arriving at their destination just before New Years.Zachary Michael Jack's book for young readers,March of the Suffragettes, tells the story of their journey. I enjoyed learning about Rosalie and her comp [...]

      I thought this was going to be a straight history, but was pleasantly surprised to find this is a historical narrative - obviously, in historical narratives, some liberty is taken with the subject and supporting people, but the overall gist is historically correct (and this author provides plenty of cites) and I find them easier to read than straight historyis was a giveaway

    10. Brittany on said:

      I give up. This is more of a play-by-play account of the actual march with a disappointing amount of background information on the suffragette movement. Unless you count the bits and pieces interspersed in the narrative, which is punctuated heavily by exclamations! So many exclamations!!

    11. Jen Naughton on said:

      I read the first couple chapters and ended up skimming the rest. I didn't think that it did much besides state the facts. I would have enjoyed going more in depth with personal stories or something.
