Sonia Sotomayor’s story is told in an accessible and interesting way. So much of her story is about her love of reading, and reading balanced with a lot of real life challenges of her childhood like poverty, language acquisition, and diabetes. Alongside those challenges, her story is also rich in culture, in love, and a spirit of adventure.
My 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter have now read the book several times. I’m so happy about that, because I can’t think of a better role model in a kids’ biography than Sonia Sotomayor. Here are some other things I love about their reading experience:
1- They got curious and interested in the Supreme Court and wanted to learn more about the judicial branch of the United States government.
2- They both love reading, but had thought of it as a hobby. It’s really inspiring how Justice Sotomayor tells her story through her reading and achievements. My kids got to thinking a bit more expansively about reading.
3- My kids had a lot of questions about some of the challenges Justice Sotomayor faced as a child, and I was thrilled to talk more about inequities in the American education system with them in a way they could “get.”
