Hot Pink: The Life and Fashions of Elsa Schiaparelli

Susan Goldman Rubin

Hot Pink: The Life and Fashions of Elsa Schiaparelli by Susan Goldman RubinShocking pink--hot pink, as it is called today--was the signature color of Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1973) and perhaps her greatest contribution to the fashion world. Schiaparelli was one of the most innovative designers in the early 20th century. Many design elements that are taken for granted today she created and brought to the forefront of fashion. She is credited with many firsts: trompe l'oeil sweaters with collars and bows knitted in; wedge heels; shoulder bags; and even the concept of a runway show for presenting collections. Hot Pink explores Schiaparelli's childhood in Rome, her introduction...

Marissa Moss

America's Tea Parties: Not One but Four! Boston, Charleston, New York, Philadelphia by Marissa MossAmerica's Tea Parties: Not One But Four! is the first nonfiction picture book to ever share that New York, Philadelphia, and Charleston each had their own tea party that took place around the same time as Boston's.

The Extraordinary Suzy Wright: A Colonial Woman on the Frontier

Teri Kanefield

The Extraordinary Suzy Wright: A Colonial Woman on the Frontier by Teri KanefieldChildren are taught much about the men who shaped early America, but history-shaping colonial women remain largely unknown and undiscussed. The Extraordinary Suzy Wright sets about to change that, telling the little-known story of Quaker Susanna (Suzy) Wright (1697-1784), a renowned poet and political activist. Suzy helped settle the Pennsylvania frontier, where she acted as legal counselor to her less literate neighbors, preparing wills, deeds, indentures, and other contracts. Surviving documents and correspondence between Suzy and a host of her contemporaries-including Benjamin Franklin;...

This Land Is Our Land: A History of American Immigration

Linda Barrett Osborne

This Land Is Our Land: A History of American Immigration by Linda Barrett OsborneAmerican attitudes toward immigrants are paradoxical. On the one hand, we see our country as a haven for the poor and oppressed; anyone, no matter his or her background, can find freedom here and achieve the "American Dream." On the other hand, depending on prevailing economic conditions, fluctuating feelings about race and ethnicity, and fear of foreign political and labor agitation, we set boundaries and restrictions on who may come to this country and whether they may stay as citizens. This book explores the way government policy and popular responses to immigrant groups evolved throughout...

Come On In, America: The United States in World War I

Linda Barrett Osborne

Come On In, America: The United States in World War I by Linda Barrett OsborneOn April 6, 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and joined World War I. German submarine attacks on American ships in March 1917 were the overt motive for declaring war, but the underlying reasons were far more complex. Even after the United States officially joined, Americans were divided on whether they should be a part of it. Americans were told they were fighting a war for democracy, but with racial segregation rampant in the United States, new laws against dissent and espionage being passed, and bankers and industrial leaders gaining increased influence and power, what did democracy...

Alexander Hamilton: The Making of America

Teri Kanefield

Alexander Hamilton: The Making of America by Teri KanefieldThe America that Alexander Hamilton knew was largely agricultural and built on slave labor. He envisioned something else: a multi-racial, urbanized, capitalistic America with a strong central government. He believed that such an America would be a land of opportunity for the poor and the newcomers. But Hamilton's vision put him at odds with his archrivals who envisioned a pastoral America of small towns, where governments were local, states would control their own destiny, and the federal government would remain small and weak.
 
The disputes that arose during America's first decades continued...
