It tells the story of Sonia Sotomayor as a little girl to becoming the first Hispanic supreme court justice and talks about everything she experiences. It is great because it talks about her struggles because of her environment and social status as a child and her issues with having diabetes at 8 years old. It talks about her family dynamic and how her mom was an influential role model because she provided for them alone while also studying to be a nurse. It also talks about her curiosity in becoming a judge. I like that Jonah Winter highlights how she originally wanted to be like Nancy Drew so it's not the cut and dry depict that she always knew what she wanted to become.
It also depicts her doing well in school to go to Princeton University but feeling very out of place there and talked about how she was able to adapt and prosper there. It also tells of the process of how she became a supreme court justice. It is written in a language that is easy to understand for students yet it is still able to demonstrate the necessary key take away points.

It also brings up the topic of prejudice and feelings of inferiority, topics that may ring true for many Latinos, especially those that attend college. This book can also be easily paired with informational text about the role of Sonia in the Supreme Court today. View all 5 comments.

Jan 29, Camila Portocarrero rated it it was amazing Shelves: wow-books. The first time I read this book was in my mom's 5th grade class, but I am certain that this book could be read to lower grades from 2nd-5th. This book is written in both English and Spanish which I love because I have never seen many great books written in two languages at schools. This book allows the students to build empathy towards people who might be new to their nation or who might not know anything about their culture and help them to adapt to their new lives in a different country.
I plan to implement this book in my future classroom as a read-aloud.
The illustrations are so vibrant, big, and explicit for the students to see. I think this is would be a great choice since it will keep the students engage and I believe all of them will be able to relate back to this book. Another great way to implement this book in my classroom would be by using it to build a lesson around empathy and acceptance. I think it is important for every teacher to touch base with their students on the topic of immigration.
Students will most likely be in a classroom with students who have come from other countries, and if they are not, they will eventually meet someone during their lives. Therefore, it is important to talk to students about immigration and the life of an immigrant so that they begin to have more knowledge about the topic. This is a WOW book for me because it touches on topics that are very dear to my heart and close to who I am in a unique and child-friendly way. Perseverance is one of the main topics of this book and I think it is important to not only talk about it in class but to show it as well.
Through the eyes of Sonia Sotomayor, we are able to experience and feel the strength she had to keep going regardless of the circumstances around you which are so encouraging to anyone who reads this book.
