working in her father's mill briefly and then departing school when the money ran out; writing at her desk; speaking passionately in front of small groups and rowdy crowds It's a little too wordy and a little less than engaging in describing a life in which Anthony traveled alone hired her own halls spoke tirelessly about women's suffrage published created forums where women could speak freely and was arrested for registering to vote Her life long friendship with suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton is touched on as are the virulent attacks against her ideas and her person She died in 1906 Votes for women did not come to pass in the United States until 1920 She said Failure is impossible and she was right but unfortunately her steely determination does not come through in this book Timeline bibliography source notesResponse to Two Professional Reviews Both of these reviews summarize the biography of Susan B Anthony very well Both reviews emphasize the impact that the ending of the book has when Wallner ends with a uote from Susan B Anthony herself I agree with these reviews that Susan’s uote “Failure is impossible” is an extremely strong and important statement to leave readers with Using this at the end of the biography leaves readers with the message and theme of hard work and never giving up Both of Griffin and Kirkus’ Reviews give readers an insight about what this biography includes and how it displays the information in both text and illustration These reviews also touch on the powerful message the story of Susan B Anthony leaves Evaluation of Literary Elements Throughout this biography readers are able to see the setting of the story through both the pictures and the text Wallner uses Wallner also uses characterization because the readers are able to see and understand the thoughts and emotions of Susan B Anthony throughout the events of her life The illustrations in this book are colorful and clear giving the reader an image to look at while reading or listening to the story There is a clear theme seen throughout the story which is to never give up and always try your best The uote at the end of the story leaves readers with this message which is very powerful Consideration of Instructional Application This is a great book to use as a read aloud in an elementary classroom The book will provide students with an inside look at Susan B Anthony’s life and accomplishments Students will enjoy the images that go along with the story and they will provide students with a clearer understanding of the biography This is a good book to use as an introduction to a history lesson about Susan B Anthony Teachers are able to read this book to their students and then do a follow up activity about the biography they just read as a class This is a simple picture book biography that will allow students to fully understand what a biography is about Students can then be introduced to the idea of an autobiography after reading this biography This will give students the proper knowledge they need to then write their own autobiographies
