Just in time for the presidential election comes Caldecott medalist Emily Arnold McCully's stirring tale of a young girl's act of bravery inspired by the great Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It is the fall of 1880, and Cordelia is more interested in horse riding than in hearing her neighbor, Mrs. Stanton talk about her fight for women's suffrage. But on Election Day, Mrs. Stanton tells the heart-wrenching story of her childhood. Charged with the story's message, Cordelia determines to go with Mrs. Stanton to the polls in an attempt to vote--above the jeers and taunts of the male crowd. With faces, landscapes, and action scenes brought to life by McCully's virtuosic illustrations, Cordelia's turning-point experience is sure to inspire today's young girls (and boys) everywhere.

From the publisher: This book, especially designed for young children, is a brief retelling of the first part of a famous book entitled THE BLACK STALLION and originally published by Random House in 1941. When the children are a little older, they will want to read the whole story, many times longer than this, just as it was written by Walter Farley. When Alec sees men forcing a tremendously beautiful black stallion onto the ship he is on, his curiosity is aroused. After feeding the horse sugar and gaining the horses trust, Alec is saved during a storm by the "black"". This is the exciting story of how Alec and the Black survived on a desert island. Other books about the black stallion are also available from Bookshare.org. This file should make an excellent embossed braille copy.
