Kids say (1 ):

This charming story of not taking no for an answer and organizing to create something positive for the community is a joyful, inspiring example of kid activism. Kamala and Maya's Big Idea shows that kids can be leaders and teach grown-ups what's possible. Readers will also get to know something about who Kamala Harris is, now that she's a candidate to be vice president of the United States, and learn about her roots as a leader from a young age. And they'll be swept up by Ana Ramírez González's kid-like illustrations that show neighbors coming together and working hard to make where they live a better place for everyone.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
