for A Long Way to Go by Zibby Oneal and Michael Dooling
Eight-year-old Lila is the pampered eldest daughter in an upper-class family living in New York City during World War I. Although she bristles under seemingly unreasonable rules about how she should behave, it has never occurred to her to question her father's authority until she finds out that her grandmother has been arrested at a Women's Suffrage demonstration. When her parents refuse to talk to her about it, Lila finds her own ways to learn more about her grandmother's political activity and even marches in a demonstration herself. An easy-to-read fictional account of one girl's awakening political consciousness introduces the historical struggle for women's voting rights. (Ages 7-10)
