" LOTS of information. I liked how the book was segmented into time chunks, with historical context set at the start of each chunk. " said.

" Very interesting and informative. I wish it had been a little more bipartisan, but I do all of the women selected are admirable. " said.

" A Woman in the House (And Senate) follows the journey of women throughout history and their path to becoming congresswomen and senators. Illustrations and photographs highlight the stories of many of these women. Reviewer #4 " said.

" Blurbs about different women trailblazers in American politics from both side of the aisle along with history of sufferage and increase in representation. I think girls interested in politics would especially enjoy it. Entertainingly written for non-fiction. " said.

" Fantastic! This is a MUST HAVE addition to every middle/high school library to showcase the evolving role of women in Congress for over a century. I am so grateful for reads like this since unfortunately they are few and far between. Sadly, out of all the woman covered there were only a handful that I was able to locate addition material on to expound further in our history studies. " said.

" GREAT.This is a fairly comprehensive overview of some of the most important women to serve in the United States Congress. It's a fair and balanced representation, with no political biases one way or another: great for juvenile non-fiction so kids can learn about politics without being inundated with, you know. Politics. A+ for writing, A+ for illustrations, A+ for all of the appendices and glossaries! A+! This one is a winner. " said.

"This is a great informative and inspiring book. The book is divided into different time periods and highlights the different achievements of female members of congress. While not every female member of congress gets an in depth look the book does cover many different women and includes a list of every woman to have served in congress after the appendix. The appendix also includes good information about women's rights, congress, and other political terms mentioned throughout the book. This is a great resource for tweens." said.

"This is a solid history of women elected to the U.S. House and Senate, focusing on those that broke barriers. It is basically told chronologically, with chapters on those who took office, sometimes grouping people who were elected during the same year. The book design is not as good as the text; some of the illustrations do not resemble the people who are being depicted (the use of photos works better), and some pages seemed crammed. Sticking just with photos probably would have worked better. Back matter includes a complete list of women in alphabetical order, an index, source notes, and bibliography." said.
