Elizabeth Warren

Nevertheless, She Persisted

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Elizabeth Warren shares the incredible story of the first female senator of Massachusetts. Elizabeth came from a struggling middle-class family in Oklahoma City. After a heart attack put Elizabeth’s father out of work, she helped out by babysitting, waitressing, and sewing, all while shining as a star member of her school’s debate team. Debate taught Elizabeth how to fight with her words, a skill that eventually won her a state championship and a college scholarship. As a lawyer and law professor, Elizabeth learned why it was so difficult for working-class families like her own to advance economically, and today she continues to fight (with her words) for the poor and middle-class in her role as a senator. Releasing in time for the 2018 election season, Elizabeth Warren emphasizes the importance of being outspoken—of using your words to fight for both yourself and for those who need your help.
 

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2018 – In this picture book biography of the senior Massachusetts senator, Wood offers a cogent perspective on Warren's life. She traces Warren's concerns over financial and social inequity to her childhood, citing her family's economic downturn after her father had a heart attack: "Her middle-class family was no longer getting by. They were poor, on the edge of losing everything, even their house." Wood describes Warren's increasing motivation to bring about social change, first as an attorney and law professor, then as a senator, including the highly publicized event that would result in the titular "Nevertheless, she persisted" rallying cry. Green subtly captures Warren's likeness in gentle, matte art featuring soft peach, rose, and plum tones. A fond tribute to a politician whose story is very much still being written. Ages 6 9.
