Full of humor and spunk - just like Esther!
""I could do that," "says six-year-old Esther as she watches her mother making tea. Start her own business at the age of nineteen? Why, she could do that, too. But one thing Esther and other women could NOT do was vote. Only men could do that.

With lively text and humorous illustrations as full of spirit as Esther herself, this striking picture book biography shows how one girl's gumption propels 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!
"I Could Do That!" is a 2006 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

"White's carefully shaped text is amplified by Carpenter's folksy oils, which combine prim, period details and witty exaggerations. A well-crafted story that secures Morris a deserved place in the sorority of redoubtable picture-book heroines." "--" Starred, " Booklist """

"Lively." " --The New York Times Book Review"

"White's text vividly builds a larger-than-life character. Carpenter's sunny illustrations make the most of Esther's actual size (six feet) and inner strength. A rollicking good story." "-- Kirkus Reviews""
""Carpenter's paintings, which combine Giselle Potter's grace with a slightly rough-hewn Western edge, are especially entertaining and effective at depicting Morris as a pillar of steadiness and calm." -- "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
