Meet My Grandmother: She's a Supreme Court Justice

Overview

For years there have been books about the careers mothers find outside the home. With many of today's working mothers having spent 20 to 30 years in the workplace, the time has come to look at what grandmothers are doing — and they are doing some very interesting things. In the first book in this sparkling new series, we visit with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor—in her office, on the bench, in the aerobics class she runs several mornings a week, and touring Washington (and eating ice cream and pizza) ...

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Courtney O'Connor provides a light-hearted look at one of the United States Supreme Court's heavy hitters, Sandra Day O'Connor, who just happens to be her grandmother. As told from Courtney's point of view, Justice O'Connor is portrayed as an ordinary grandmother who enjoys spending time shopping, visiting the sights of Washington D.C., and just "hanging out" with her granddaughter. Courtney and Justice O'Connor also invite readers to join them in chambers to see what a day in the life of a Supreme Court Justice involves. Photos of Courtney and Justice O'Connor provide the visual accompaniment to the straightforward text. This would be a nice addition to any school library as a reference book but it might not be a book that the average reader would add to his or her private collection.
Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A photo-essay written from a child's perspective. Courtney O'Connor, granddaughter of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, spends a day walking in her grandmother's shoes. The job of a Supreme Court Justice is explained in understandable terms and Justice O'Connor is portrayed as a "regular" person and a grandmother who loves her family. In addition, the pair visit some museums and historical sites as well as shop and eat ice cream. The layout is eye-catching with pastel backgrounds that enhance the well-chosen photographs. The last page, "If You Want to Be a Supreme Court Justice...," encourages children to work and study hard, and to "be yourself," stay healthy, and obey the law. A competently done book in a promising new series.-Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
