Kamala Harris - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the inspiring rise of politician Kamala Harris.
Little Kamala used to accompany her parents to civil rights marches in California, tied to her sister’s stroller so she wouldn’t get lost. From an early age, she dreamed of becoming a lawyer to help people in need. At university, Kamala felt like she could do anything and everything. She earned a law degree to make sure the most vulnerable were protected by justice. Kamala’s life was full of firsts, including becoming the first woman, Black woman, and South Asian American to be elected Vice President. As Kamala stated to little girls everywhere in her speech—she may be the first but she won’t be the last.
At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. Also in this series - Emmeline Pankhurst, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo and many others.
