What I Loved:
Wow! Can we just talk about the cover for a minute? The illustrated cover of Ruth Objects is a sneak peek of the amazing illustrations inside. This cover is so powerful, the title isn’t even on it! The artwork is doing all the work and it is perfect. What an amazing job illustrator Eric Velasquez did on this book. He doesn’t stop there with many more beautifully created images inside the cover.

How I Felt:
Ruth Objects is a biographical book on Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

From her mother's death as she graduated from high school, her challenges as a woman (and a married one at that) at law school, as ...more

An excellent overview of the life so far of Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Rappaport structures the book chronologically, hitting the pivotal points in Ginsburg's life and career. Punctuating the story are quotes from Ginsburg herself.

Eric Velasquez's powerful illustration are a true high point of the book and the cover itself is a statement. Featuring a striking portrait of Ginsburg look out, the cover has no title and needs none.

Extensive back matter includes a list of important

Doreen Rappaport's Big Words biography series adds another title. This time features the one and only Ruth Bader Ginsburg. You can't really go wrong with this combination.
