This book is about Jane Addams
"Dangerous Jane: The Life and Times of Jane Addams, Crusader for Peace" is an engaging and beautifully illustrated picture book biography that captures the spirit and dedication of social justice pioneer Jane Addams. Published in 2017, this book, highlighted among the 2018 Bank Street College of Education Best Books of the Year and CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Books, dives deep into the life of a woman who transformed her empathy into action. From establishing Chicago's Hull House, which became a sanctuary for immigrants, to her fearless advocacy for peace during wartime, Jane Addams's journey is portrayed with vivid emotional depth and historical context. Aimed at elementary school readers, this narrative not only highlights her contributions to gender equality, immigrant rights, and economic justice but also inspires critical reflection on how one person’s courage can ignite change in the face of adversity. This story encourages young readers to think about what it means to be "dangerous" in a world that often resists change.
