Ruth Objects: The Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Ruth Objects: The Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Doreen Rappaport; illustrated by Eric Velasquez. 2020. Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers .

Brief summary: Young readers learn about Judge Ginsburg’s amazing life story from when she was a young girl going to the library for books to read, to a young woman becoming a lawyer, and to  an older woman being appointed to serve on the Untied State Supreme Court.

Comments: Some of Judge Ginsburg’s most famous quotes are peppered throughout the book in large letters and quotation marks. The back has an Important Dates, Author’s Note, Illustrator’s Note, Selected Bibliography, and other sections.

I always enjoy the narrative nonfiction pictures books by Doreen Rappaport. The only critique I have is that I would like to have seen some photos of Ruth Ginsburg in the back section.
