About the Book
Meet the first Hispanic woman justice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court!

These brand-new easy readers are the perfect introductory biography series for young children. Each book will feature a recognizable figure and will take the reader on an exciting journey from obscure childhood to famed adulthood. Aspirational first-person text will be accompanied by a mixture of illustrations and photographs. Sonia Sotomayor is one of the most inspirational Americans of modern history. Her incredible story of determination and fearlessness will excite and inspire early readers. With simple engaging text vetted by literacy experts along side dynamic illustrations, Sonia's true American dream story will come to life. This volume will complement Common Core State Standards and feature helpful back matter tools such as a glossary and further reading.

My Take on the Book
Sonia Sotomayor , one of our United States Supreme Court Judges, is an inspiration. She came from a hard working family who lived in the Bronx. Through hard work and perseverance her dream of becoming a judge became a reality.

In this Level 3 reader, your child will learn about this amazing woman. She and her family overcame numerous challenges.

I believe this story will assist your child in developing a concept of a good role model. With an education and hard work, your child could accomplish their dreams too. I encourage parents to expose their children to nonfiction books about real people.

Ann Marie Anderson did an excellent job writing this book for children showing situations a child may encounter and using text that is easy for them to comprehend.
