Kamala Harris Rooted in Justice begins when Eve comes home from school angry “Teacher asked what we wanted to be when we grew up and I said President and Calvin said ‘Girls can’t be President stupid’” Eve’s mother then tells her about “a girl from right here in Oakland who hopes to be President one day” Nikki Grimes then poetically tells the life story of Kamala Harris with uestions and comments from Eve and her mother added along the way The first part of Kamala’s story focuses on how her parents raised Kamala and her sister to care about fairness freedom and justice as well as the importance of protesting and fighting for those ideals The parents also cultivate Kamala’s appreciation for multiculturism and dedication to hard work traits that eventually lead her to successful college and law school experiences and her career in criminal justice and public office Grimes not only conveys Kamala Harris’s biography but also artfully drops references that will lead curious readers to discover about Kamala’s inspirations including Shirley Chisholm Thurgood Marshall Nina Simone school integration initiatives and The Laura Freeman illustrations accompanying the text are extraordinary Because Kamala Harris is such a well known figure her representations need to be recognizable and Laura Freeman gets it right The Kamala Harris we know is there on the pages complemented by bold color choices and dramatic framing and angles These combined literary and artistic presentations of Kamala Harris may have young readers wondering along with Eve if Kamala Harris is “Like Wonder Woman” Eve’s mother provides the perfect answer for her daughter and this book’s readers “No Better Wonder Woman isn’t real” The biographical elements of Kamala Harris Rooted in Justice end as Harris withdraws from the 2020 presidential race but Nikki Grimes presciently leaves open the door for other exciting possibilities in the making of new American history for both Kamala Harris and this book’s readersI encourage not only primary school classrooms and libraries to offer this book but it also will find enthusiastic readers among middle school and high school students

I think I can write that Nikki Grimes is prescient To write the story of Kamala Harris not knowing what was going to happen in this 2020 presidential race is a gift to all of us I suppose I could have researched and discovered much of this information online but it is much nicer to read Nikki's story about Kamala in a uniue way and to enjoy the beautiful images by illustrator Laura Freeman Nikki allows a mother to tell about Kamala to her daughter Eve a first grader who has arrived home from school fuming A boy has told her that girls cannot be President Her mother shares that he's wrong that a girl from Oakland hopes to be that President one day Thus she begins with Kamala's story with her name meaning lotus flower and a smile that opens wide like petals fanning across the water's surface The metaphor itself reveals a life as Nikki expands it reminding through the mother's voice that you don't see the flower's roots They grow deep deep deep down Kamala's story travels from her beginnings marching in her stroller with her parents for civil rights visiting with grandparents who also fought for other's rights in other countries riding a bus to school during the integration of schools in her elementary years Nikki fills the story with Kamala's continuing striving for leadership and justice from her Howard University time when she ran for the class representative of the Liberal Arts Council through her time at Hastings College of the Law when she served as President of the Black Law Students Association and hosted a job fair for black law students to have a chance to be hired Don't miss the rest of her story in Nikki's book With some setbacks and many wins Kamala does not stop being the same kind of person we see on the news today a fighter for truth and justice for all Freeman's scenes fill the pages with pictures imagined from Nikki's words groups of people in history including Kamala there living her life of thoughtful public service It takes her life all the way to her dropping out of the Presidential race yet Nikki writes Kamala Harris is still writing her American story A timeline of major events in Kamala's life is added at the back It's a beautiful book to share this fall before the election
