Synopsis: In this book from the highly acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Kamala Harris, the first woman, first Black person, and first South Asian American to be elected vice president of the USA.
Little Kamala used to accompany her parents to civil rights marches in California, strapped into her pushchair so she wouldn’t get lost. From an early age, she dreamed of becoming a lawyer to help people in need. At university, Kamala felt like she could do anything and everything. She earned a law degree to make sure the most vulnerable were protected by justice. Kamala’s life was full of firsts, including becoming the first woman, Black woman, and South Asian American to be elected vice president. As Kamala stated to little girls everywhere in her speech – she may be the first but she won’t be the last. This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the politician’s life.

Thank you so much to Quarto/Frances Lincoln Children’s and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.
Review: It’s amazing reading just how many things she was a first of and how much she accomplished within her life. She’s a very strong, determined and goal orientated woman and never stopped dreaming and wanting to do everything in her power to help others. She’s now inspiring younger generations and that’s incredible.
As always in this series these books are inspiring and always easy to read, telling you the important story of an inspiring human but in smaller chunks. I’m so happy that Kamala Harris was given a book in this series.
If you love this series or you have a little dreamer that lives this series, this is one that needs to be added to your collection.
