Summary
Discover the incredible story of a young daughter of immigrants who would grow up to be the first woman, first Black person, and first South Asian American ever elected Vice President of the United States in this moving picture book biography of Kamala Harris.

When Kamala Harris was young, she often accompanied her parents to civil rights marches--so many, in fact, that when her mother asked a frustrated Kamala what she wanted, the young girl responded with: "Freedom!"

As Kamala grew from a small girl in Oakland to a senator running for president, it was this long-fostered belief in freedom and justice for all people that shaped her into the inspiring figure she is today. From fighting for the use of a soccer field in middle school to fighting for the people of her home state in Congress, Senator Harris used her voice to speak up for what she believed in and for those who were otherwise unheard. And now this dedication has led her all the way to being elected Vice President of the United States.

Told in Nikki Grimes's stunning verse and featuring gorgeous illustrations by Laura Freeman, this picture book biography brings to life a story that shows all young people that the American dream can belong to all of us if we fight for one another.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This important biography of California Senator Kamala Harris comes at an opportune moment, when the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment intersects with the Black Lives Matter Movement. Weaving a fictional story around an account of Harris' factual biography, Grimes' picture book makes it easy for readers to identify with the recent Democratic presidential candidate. The story begins when an African American girl comes home from school angry that a classmate told her she couldn't be president because she's a girl. Her mother then explains how another girl, of Black and East Indian heritage, recently ran for president. Freeman's drawings work as hard as the prose to flesh out Harris' life with realistic illustrations of her childhood and career. The text emphasizes Harris' commitment to activism, education, and hard work. Vignettes showing her both protesting as a child with her parents and later with her sister to express her dismay with a landlord's rule about soccer-playing on their building's lawn will resonate with kids conversant with recent marches. A good bet for all libraries."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Lightly framed as a conversation between a girl and her mother, this comprehensive picture book biography follows formative events in the life of former presidential candidate and "lawyer, prosecutor, Senator" Kamala Harris. Though each page is information-dense, lyrical prose makes the text effortlessly readable ("Right away, Kamala was like clay/ her parents molded for action..../ chewing on her pacifier/ and words like 'peace' and 'justice'‚ÄČ"). In multitextured digital art, Freeman succeeds in creatively capturing a range of Harris's expressions and experiences, exemplified by a layered portrait of her life and legacy. Notably, Grimes covers Harris's presidential run and withdrawal, leaving young readers with an uplifting message of perseverance and agency: "Kamala Harris is still writing/ her American story.// And so are you." Back matter includes a timeline and sources. Ages 4--8. (Aug.)"
