" “She is RBG—scary smart and fearless, picky and demanding, and a powerful fighter against unfairness.”The inspiring life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Such an eye-opening read for girls who have not known the discrimination that women of Ruth’s generation and her mother’s generation had to deal with. Includes a timeline, bibliography and a list of her “10 ten moments” where she fought for justice. " said.

"I love Ruth Bader Ginsburg and think she has done incredibly positive things for this country. I am thrilled that she is getting so much praise and attention while she can still appreciate it. This book by Kathleen Krull is part of that attention and Krull has done a good job explaining Ginsburg's career. Little mention is made of Ginburg's personal life except for the influence of her mother. The illustrations by Nancy Zhang are fine, well drawn but generally lacking in emotions. As a result they do not create that spark that draws the reader further into the story. With better illustrations there is a possibly I would rate this book at 4. " said.

" 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.

"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.
