Growing Up Supremely: The Women of the U.S. Supreme Court
by Nichola D. Gutgold and Jessica L. Armstrong
The United States Supreme Court decides the laws of the land and is located in Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital. It was started in 1789, but it took almost two hundred years before the first woman was appointed as a Supreme Court Justice. Since that time, only four women have served on the Supreme Court.
In this book, the authors share the inspiring, and hardworking lives of the four women — Sandra Day O’Connor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, & Sonia Sotomayor —and offer young readers a glimpse of their lives as young girls who were doing all the things — reading, writing, speaking, reaching for their dreams and never giving up — that led them to the nation’s highest court!
Read all about them, and you too could grow up supremely!
Perfect for ages 6-10.
