Ruth Bader Ginsburg - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the life of the notorious RBG - Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the beloved supreme court justice.
Young readers can learn about Ruth's mother's determination that her daughter would be educated and independent. Ruth promised herself she would do everything her mother didn’t get the chance to do. And she excelled: at college, as a law professor, and later on the supreme court fighting gender discrimination.
Told in a simple yet engaging fashion, accompanied by stylish quirky illustrations, this book is perfectly pitched for young readers discovering who their heroines are.
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. 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).
Also in this series - Ella Fitzgerald, Emmeline Pankhurst, Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Judit Orosz.
