Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina Supreme Court Justice, is the subject of the sixteenth picture book in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies about heroes.
Sonia Sotomayor learned to speak Spanish before she spoke English. And she had barely started walking before she learned to run. Full of energy and dedication, Sonia read every book she could get her hands on as a child—and she especially loved detective stories. Those stories inspired her to become a lawyer, then New York City’s first Hispanic federal judge, and finally, the third woman and first Hispanic Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
This lively, bestselling biography series inspires kids to dream big, one great role model at a time. You’ll want to collect each book.
We can all be heroes!
