Back of Book: Get to know celebrated Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg—in the first picture book about her life—as she proves that disagreeing does not make you disagreeable!
Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has spent a lifetime disagreeing: disagreeing with inequality, arguing against unfair treatment, and standing up for what’s right for people everywhere. This biographical picture book about the Notorious RBG, tells the justice’s story through the lens of her many famous dissents, or disagreements.
My Review: Before reading this book, I didn’t know much about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I knew she was in politics and that was all. I was very excited to hear about this book. I think it is important that children learn about the men and women who become judges. I love how this story goes over Ruth’s younger years. It shows readers that girl can do anything just like boys. Ruth was a strong lawyer who went on to fight for many woman’s rights. The book follows Ruth’s life and teaches readers about her becoming a Supreme Count Judge. This is a perfect addition to any National Woman’s unit. It also is great for book reports or historical research. It is a longer book so I wouldn’t bring it out for grades younger then 2nd. The illustrations are detailed and beautiful. This book is a great look at events that have changed the course of history for women. There is more information in the back of the book about Ruth. Truly a well written and well researched book.
