This is another entry in the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series that shows children that those who have done great things started out as kids themselves.
This time readers learn about Kamala Harris and her journey from child of civil rights marchers to Vice President of the United States. Children see Kamala embracing both her Jamaican and Indian heritages. They also find out that she valued education, attending an historic Black college and then law school. They see that Kamala achieved so much even before she knew Joe Biden!
One message that kids can take away from this title is Kamala’s belief that, while she may be the first Black and female VP, she does not believe that she will be the last. Hopefully this book will encourage children to believe in what they can achieve and to consider public service.
The text is vibrantly illustrated and there are additional resources and a time line at the end of the book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
