" I’m down for any book about how bad ass RBG is. My one bone to pick with this one is the relentless repetition of the title. " said.

" I love all things RBG and it was nice to learn just a little something different when reading this picture book biography. Inspirational story to encourage others to pursue their dreams and to stand up for justice and equality for all. " said.

" I thought the detail in this picture book was fantastic. It demonstrates repeatedly how she argued for fairness in the application of the law. She really gives attention to the future implications of Supreme Court decisions as well. She faced so much discrimination personally and persevered. " said.

" After having already read a couple Ruth Bader Ginsburg picture book biographies before, I still managed to learn some new things with this one. I've enjoyed seeing which parts of her life have become mainstays and which ones are elaborated upon. This includes a timeline and 10 stand out cases she's been a part of!I'm definitely interested in reading more book about her!Expected publication: February 27th " said.

" Not many biographies do well in telling the abridged version of a person's life in a biography but this #PB gets it right. Perfect research text for the young person giving a book report, yet intriguing to make it fun to read. Well done! Written by Kathleen Krull, illustrated by Nancy Zhang, published by Harper Collins.#PB #biography #RuthGinsberg " said.

"3.5 stars
A good biography, I learned a little more about RBG (there have been so many books this past year!). Includes a timeline and sources along with some information about the structure of the federal court system and a top ten of Supreme Court cases for which RBG "fought for fairness" which is unique (if I remember correctly) to the many recent books for elementary ages. The art is fine, I'm not a big fan of the depictions of people though--didn't always look consistent or like the person.
Thank you to the author for the ARC!

"Numerous RBG bios have been recently published for children, and after reading most (all?) of them, this one has little new information to offer. It does include a unique short statement about Joseph McCarthy and Ginsburg's admiration for the lawyers who stood up to him, but other than that, same info. Plus part of the power of her story is that she is a tiny person making a huge difference, and in some of these illustrations, she looks tall and willowy. If your classroom or library has NO RBG bios for young readers yet and this one is the only one available, grab it. Otherwise, take a look at Jonah Winter's book and the exceptional I Dissent by Debbie Levy.

""It struck Ruth that whenever the law used the word 'protection' - as in women needing special protection - it meant the slamming of a door."

I love how the book portrayed lawyers as crusaders and heroes; that's the way young Ruth envisioned them, from the time she saw lawyers standing up to Joseph McCarthy during the anti-Communist witch hunts of the 1950s. I was also fascinated by the number of times she overcame obstacles that limited women - in sports, in law school, in her religious practice, as a wife and mother. One of the most fascinating, quirky details pointed out that, once she became our second female justice on the Supreme Court, the Court had to add a women's bathroom.

In wearing the pin and earrings of her beloved, educated, supportive mother as she first argued before the Supreme Court, "She was suiting up in armor to fight her opponent that day: the United States government. And truth was her weapon."

A wonderful book about the power of dissent and the importance of fighting for fairness. The text includes a timeline, some background information on the federal court system, and ten of RBG's top cases, as well as a list of sources.
