Description:

In April 1916, Nell Richardson and Alice Burke set out from New York City in a little yellow car, embarking on a bumpy, muddy, unmapped journey ten thousand miles long. They took with them a teeny typewriter, a tiny sewing machine, a wee black kitten, and a message for Americans all across the country: Votes for Women! The women’s suffrage movement was in full swing, and Nell and Alice would not let anything keep them from spreading the word about equal voting rights for women. Braving blizzards, deserts, and naysayers—not to mention a whole lot of tires stuck in the mud—the two courageous friends made their way through the cities and towns of America to further their cause. One hundred years after Nell and Alice set off on their trip, Mara Rockliff revives their spirit in this lively and whimsical tale.

Quotes:

"Lively music and sound effects of the car’s motor and boisterous animals help enliven the story, which concludes with the narrator reading historical and source notes from the book that provide a brief history of women’s long road to winning the right to vote. With the centennial for the passage of the 19th amendment coming in 2020, this timely and informative film—which includes a read-along option—is recommended", Video Librarian
