Description

From award-winning author Kathleen Krull comes an empowering picture book biography--with dazzling illustrations from artist Nancy Zhang--about the second female justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It's a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg may be one of the most respected women in the United States, but her recognition is nothing short of hard-won. For years before becoming a justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth had to fight the notion that being female meant that she was less smart, less qualified, and less worthy of attention than her male counterparts. Throughout college, law school, and her work life, she faced discrimination--because she was a woman.

But it was in her fight for equality as a lawyer that she made an imprint on American history, by changing the way the law dealt with women's rights and by showing people that unfairness to women wasn't just a female problem--that it negatively affected men and children, too.

In this inspiring picture book from award-winning author Kathleen Krull and artist Nancy Zhang, readers will learn about Ruthless Ruthie--a warrior for equality, defender of justice, and a trailblazer for girls everywhere.

"Large, colorful illustrations complement and highlight the text. Zhang captures the look and style of each era in Ginsburg's life. Employing a strongly admiring tone and accessible language, the author emphasizes Ginsburg's struggles, strengths, and triumphs. Informative, well-told biography."--Kirkus Reviews
