Series Sunday: Kamala Harris

(Little People, Big Dreams) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Kamala Harris, a new book in the Little People, Big Dreams series. The bestselling series explore the lives of outstanding people; all of them achieved incredible things that started as big dreams. As children, we always choose what we wanna be when we grow up. The vast majority rarely become what they planned. But there are others that live out their dreams. Kamala Harris is one!

"First of color to..." ~ 50%

First woman, first Black, first South Asian American to be elected Vice President of the United States. Little Kamala accompanied her parents to civil rights marches. They would walk and push her in the stroller. As a little girl she dreamed of being a lawyer to help people. Later, she earned a law degree to make sure the most vulnerable people were protected by justice. Her dreams became true when she became a politician.

Kamala Harris is intended for beginning readers. You may also read it to babies and toddlers. Inspiring stories should start before they can even walk. The illustrations are stylish. The sentences are simple. The extra facts are educational and the historical photos add to context. 

This wonderful children's book inspires younger generations to dream big! Goals are attainable! Most of all, little people can change the world! I recommend gifting Kamala Harris to the young girl or boy in your life. If you are not surrounded by little people, purchase a copy and donate to your local library.

Happy Early Pub Day, Vegara and Semmer! Kamala Harris is now available.
