Thank you for visiting!
This nicely made soft-cover book offers an brief biography of AOC, “the face of the Democratic Party. And its best hope for the future.” It is well-written, engaging, and includes several black and white illustrations that are well done, too. The book mentioned the pushback she’s gotten from the right, in passing, while dwelling more on her accomplishments in school, without omitting the financial struggles she faced to do so. It’s an excellent book for libraries, schools, and others who want their girls to lift their sights.
This engaging biography explains how the world-famous young environmentalist went from a one-teenager “strike” against going to school into a global environmental force who shames the lackadaisical leaders who’ve allowed our planet to fall into such dire circumstances. It explains what and why she’s done what she has, drawing the ire of former-presidents, and led her into Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” award. The paperback is brief, given her short life, yet the engaging text and helpful black and white illustrations, will be an inspiration to young people who wonder if they can make a difference someday, too.
