A first children's book by our first female Supreme Court Justice: Sandra Day O'Connor. A real pioneer woman and strong, kind cowgirl, Mrs. O'Connor has already written her fascinating autobiography. Now she presents us with her first children's book; "Finding Susie," based on actual episodes in her childhood. She grew up on a desert cattle ranch, situated between the Arizona and New Mexico borders. Surrounded by all sorts of wild animals; a pet turtle named Hercules, a rabbit named Daisy, even a little bobcat named Bob. This story centers, primarily, around a darling, smiling little dog, named Susie, who became Sandra's most cherished animal friend. The magnificent, tender-hearted, watercolor illustrations by famous children's book illustrator/author, Tom Pohrt ("Crow and Weasel"... "Wish You Were Here..." Coyote Goes Walking"..."Genies, Meanies and Magic Rings~Three Tales From The Arabian Nights,) are nothing less than breath taking and truly enhance and brings this story to life. Triple Dawg dare you to read ~ then find yourself re-reading "Finding Susie." Betting you and family will find this endearing short story LONG on true delight. ****** J. Sterling

Finding Susie is an enjoyable book about former Supreme Court justice Sandra's days growing up on a desert cattle ranch. She's asked for a pet for a long time. Living out in the ranch she's tried to keep various animals, like a turtle, rabbit, coyote, and bobcat, or nurse injured ones back to health. The animals are always glad to return to their homes though and don't ever seem to really like Sandra that much. Will she ever have a pet of her own? Children in elementary grades will enjoy this book. I enjoyed reading this story and recommend it for the elementary school library. The illustrations are nice as well as the inside cover that has copies of photographs of Sandra's life.

This is a great book for a lawyer who admires Sandra Day O'Connor and has a young child. It teaches good lessons and lets you know a bit more about a good Justist.
