What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

“A great introduction to RBG for the coming generation.”

Following Ruth Bader Ginsburg from her childhood (supported by a mother who imbued her with a love of books and a sense that she was “just as important as a boy) to her work as a Supreme Court justice, this informative board book biography shares important steps in Ginsburg’s journey to becoming the strong, renowned advocate for equal rights. It highlights the opposition Ginsburg experienced while attending law school, her work teaching law after no one would hire her, as well as her volunteer work with the ACLU that led to her own appearance before the Supreme Court arguing a case. This timely biography will appeal to Ginsburg’s passionate following and gives the littlest readers a chance to become acquainted with a woman who has become an icon for many. The text itself is on the longer side for a board book, and the simplicity of the telling lends itself best for understanding of the older board book audience. The illustrations are enjoyable, achieving a tone of realism in their simplicity and style that matches the biographical nature of the work while still appealing to its target audience. Overall, an excellent overview of RBG’s life and accomplishments for the budding generation!
