Abigail Adams lived through the Revolutionary War and became the First Lady of the second president of the United States. Though women of her time could not vote, govern, or own property, Abigail believed that women should not be ruled by laws they did not make. Although she did not see these rights come to women, she never gave up talking, writing, and perhaps most important, believing that women were equal to men. Her courage and strength enabled her to help her husband create a new country. She never fired a gun, but her pen was a weapon that helped win freedom for her country--and herself.
Gr 3-5-These biographies emphasize the writings of two notable women. Since duty frequently called her husband away throughout their marriage, Adams often wrote to her spouse not only about family matters, but also about her political views. Child, an insatiable reader as a youngster, grew up to become a successful writer. Known for her poem "Over the River and through the Woods," she devoted her later years to working for the abolitionist movement and risked censorship. Both books draw on primary sources and support the view that these two women influenced history through their writings and beliefs. Some details about the times and places flesh out the life stories. These titles should interest students not yet ready to handle more in-depth treatments. One adequate, full-page, black-and-white illustration appears within each chapter.-Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, Miamisburg, OH Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
