I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark by Debbie Levy (Grades 2-5) Summer Reading
I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark--by Debbie Levy and illustrated by Elizabeth Baddeley--"Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you." This picture book biography of Justice Ginsburg traces her achievements in the field of law back to her girlhood years, emphasizing the importance of dissent in the face of an unequal society. Students will delight as they watch a young Ginsburg "protest" being forced to write with her right hand (she was left-handed) and "object" to being made to take home economics instead of shop class. She is the embodiment that disagreeing does not need to mean being disagreeable.
