Callie wrote a letter

My Great granddaughter read the book. She is almost 7 years old. She read it to her class in the library. Then she wrote a letter to Judge Ginsburg in which she said that "I dissent a lot, too!" She is a constant reader in the 1st grade doing 4th grade level work. She loves to read!
