A big event has Isabella ready to go at the crack of dawn. But that's a motion her parents are not likely to pass. After a two-to-one vote, it's decided that some things need to happen first — like eating breakfast and brushing her teeth! But if her family is going to work like a democracy, Isabella knows what she has to do; call an assembly and campaign her way out the door. Taking inspiration from the women who trail blazed their way onto the political map of America, Isabella celebrates the women who were first to hold their offices. And if Isabella can get her parents out the door, she might just witness the first woman voted into the highest position of all...
The imaginative little girl from My Name Is Not Isabella returns in this celebration of women in American politics. Featured women include the first female mayor, Susanna Madora Salter, the first female governor Nellie Tayloe Ross, the first woman elected to Congress Jeannette Rankin, and the first female Cabinet member Frances Perkins.
"The heroine of My Name Is Not Isabella highlights pioneering women in American politics... Biographical background about each politico and a timeline of other female firsts round out a light introduction to women's role in U.S. political history. " -- Publishers Weekly
