“Never underestimate dainty little ladies.”

Thank You Sarah, written by Laurie Halse Anderson and illustrated by Matt Faulkner

“Whenever Sarah found a spare moment, she wrote. But this time it wasn’t for the thrill of seeing her work in print – it was to keep her family from starving. Soon Boston magazines began to feature Sarah’s writing. Much to Sarah’s delight, with many publications came payment.”

“Sarah made sure Ladies’ Magazine was different. She published articles on history and science and new schools for women.”

“When Lincoln received Sarah’s letter, the nation was in the middle of a civil war. Lincoln understood that sometimes it was hard to remember good things in bad times. People needed a day to be thankful for food on their tables, roofs over their heads, and the blessings in their lives. Thanksgiving was exactly what this nation needed.”
