Saturday Storytime: Equality’s Call

Amy reads Equality’s Call, by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Magdalena Mora, published by Beach Lane Books.

This picture book for younger readers tells the story of voting rights in the United States, and the progress that’s been made to extend those rights to each and every American. Because as the book says, “a right isn’t right until it’s granted to all.”

Afterwards, Amy demonstrates how to make a scaled-up rosette ribbon that resembles those historically worn by women’s suffrage advocates. We have a couple of these hanging in our front window until Election Day, so take a look the next time you pick up books!
