Reviews

"Inspirational reading--and much more. Katz, through the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has built the perfect how-to manual to be the best that anyone can be: loyal to principles, open to compassion and social justice, and fully devoted to your profession." --F. Isabel Campoy, Award-winning author (isabelcampoy.com)

"Susan has a wonderful ability to tackle hard topics like the discrimination Ruth Bader Ginsburg faced during her life and career and make them understandable to a young audience. Her thought-provoking sidebars invite readers to put themselves in Ruth's shoes and see the world through a wider lens. Bright illustrations round out this inspiring look at an important woman of our time." --Brandi Dougherty, New York Times best-selling children's book author

"Readers will be engaged from the first page of this book about the exemplary life of a woman who opened doors for a new generation of law professionals. Her vision, persistence, and influence in the interpretation of human conduct will permeate the courts into the future." --Alma Flor Ada, award-winning author, speaker, and educator (almaflorada.com)

"Katz's ability to deftly present difficult issues like anti-Semitism, sexism, and gender discrimination in an age-appropriate way makes this book unique. By not papering over these formidable obstacles, young readers will see that, while they may encounter altogether different roadblocks, no path to greatness is without them. A must-read for any young boy or girl who dreams of doing big things." --Dave Keane, author of Who Wants A Tortoise?, Sloppy Joe, and the Joe Sherlock: Kid Detective series
