Great book but would recommend for older children as it had some language and concepts intended for an older age group (8 or 9 years plus)

I got this book for my nephews a couple years ago and now for my stepson. They all love it. Every child, boy and girl, needs to know what RBG has done for them. Great book about her life story!

My kindergarten daughter loved this book when her teacher read it to her class. I checked it out from the library and she still kept asking to read it nearly every other day. When it was time to return to the library, I decided it was a keeper and bought it here at Target. It's a great true story about how girls or people of a certain background or of a certain color should not be held back because of who they are. I am now a great admirer or RBG.
