This concise biography does a fantastic job of highlighting Ruth Bader Ginsburg's many accomplishments with kid-friendly writing, humor, and appealing cartoon-like illustrations. Complex case law is distilled to refer to things as being fair or unfair -- language kids can easily understand. Ruth is a tremendous role model for kids, and I Am Ruth Bader Ginsberg does her justice.
