Dangerous Jane: the Life and Times of Jane Addams, Crusader for Peace (Paperback)
An inspiring picture book biography of Jane Addams--the groundbreaking social activist who went from the FBI's "Most Dangerous Woman in America" to Nobel Peace Prize winner.
"Hand to readers looking to make a difference in the world." --School Library Journal
From the time she was a child, Jane Addams's heart ached for others--for those who were sad, hungry, and hopeless. When she grew up, Jane created Hull House, a settlement house in Chicago where she worked eighteen hours a day, providing whatever her immigrant neighbors needed: English lessons, childcare, steady work--as well as friendship, dignity, and hope.
Then World War I broke out. Jane had helped people from different countries live in peace at Hull House, but what could she do to stop a war?
This energetic, inspiring picture book biography focuses on the peace work that helped Jane Addams go from FBI's "Most Dangerous Woman in America" to the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Suzanne Slade's powerful text, written in free verse, is brought to life with Alice Ratterree's stunning, period-perfect illustrations. eBook available.
