1.   I Could Do That!: Ester Morris Gets Women the Vote
Linda Arms White (Author), Nancy Carpenter (Illustrator)
“I could do that,” says six-year-old Esther as she watches her mother making tea. Start her own business at the age of nineteen? Why, she could do that, too. But one thing Esther and other women could NOT do was vote. Only men could do that.
