I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark - Cover
I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark
Debbie Levy, Simon & Schuster 2016
 
An exciting, biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg filled with wonderful phrases like "I Disagree, I Object, I Beg to Differ, I Dissent". Written for 6 to 10 year olds - but we found the four year olds were fascinated!. The book begins in her childhood and her early awareness of bias and prejudice. It carries her all the way to the Supreme Court and her powerful, influential work there opposing racism, sexism, supporting voting rights and more. There is a segment for adults at the end. Be prepared for a child to look you in the eye and say "I do Not concur"!
