not appropriate for fourth graders
on May 21, 2014
This book was read by my fourth grade son as part of the engage ny curriculum. It is about an entitled 11 year old girl who lives in Susquehanna, PA in the early twentieth century. After deciding to run away from home, the 11 year old girl ends up taking a Forrest Gump like adventure running into the important events of her time, including making significant contributions to the women's sufferage movement. Not only is it poorly written, but it is also inclusive of many far left ideas. It is anti-parent, anti-military, pro-global governance, and pro-feminist. Be concerned if this book show up in your fourth grader's curriculum.
