In another New York Council for the Humanities’ Conversations with Kids program, this time focusing on the topic of democracy, we will read and discuss the book I Could Do That! Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote by Linda Arms White.  In this story, six-year-old Esther Morris learns early on that she can do anything if she puts her mind to; this story shows how one girl’s courage drive her through a life filled with challenges until, in 1869, she wins the vote for women in Wyoming Territory – the first time ever in the United States!
