Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In lively prose, McElroy relates significant moments in Sandra Day O'Connor's life. On almost every page, there is a photo or a sidebar featuring additional information. Children will be drawn into her life because the author has included so many items of interest to them, such as how she loved to ride horses or the loneliness of life on an Arizona ranch. The difficulty that she first had getting a job as a lawyer is told with humor and compassion. Children will be able to appreciate the changes that have been effected over the past decades. The author describes Sandra's approach to justice and fairness, citing instances where, even though her personal feelings were different, she upheld what she knew to be fair. Now that Sandra is in her seventies, there is talk that she will retire or become chief justice, but she wants to concentrate on what she knows is most important—being the best justice she can. McElroy makes Sandra come alive as a person, helping young people to realize, first of all, that important people have many of the same characteristics as ordinary people. Secondly, she portrays an older woman in a very positive light, creating a role model for young girls and boys alike. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-A concise, objective biography that opens dramatically with O'Connor taking her place as the first woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. The book describes her childhood on a ranch, education, marriage, family life, legal career, and work as a Supreme Court justice. The text is clear, lively, and filled with anecdotes and quotations, though there are no citations. McElroy also explains what trial and appeals court judges do, the purpose of the Supreme Court, and the nomination process. Numerous black-and-white and color photos and sidebars are included. The author's Meet My Grandmother: She's a Supreme Court Justice (Millbrook, 1999) is written from the viewpoint of Courtney O'Connor; Jean Kinney Williams's Sandra Day O'Connor (Ferguson, 2001) goes into slightly more detail, and has material on becoming a lawyer or judge and a further reading section. This engaging title is a good resource for reports.-Mary N. Oluonye, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
