A sweet and endearing story about sisters who don't take no for an answer. This is such an adorable story about working hard for what you want and creating a better community. The artwork is beautiful and the message that girls can do absolutely anything is such an amazing story that all young girls should have the chance to read.

Such a great story and illustrations about our First Female & WOC Vice President-elect and her sister!! I searched for this book right away and am reading it to my almost 2yo daughter. It’s never to soon to inspire the future generations.
