Levy, Debbie. I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark. Illustrated by Elizabeth Baddeley, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2017. I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark celebrates Ruth Bader Ginsburg's lifelong refusal to accept the unacceptable. Inspired by her mother, Ginsburg's devotion to fighting for justice is signaled by the refrains "I dissent", "I object", "I do not concur!" that ring through both text and illustrations. Frequently humorous, this picture book biography paints Ginsburg's personality, the support of her husband and family, and her struggles as a lawyer, professor and judge. With energy and charm, Levy and Baddeley represent Justice Ginsburg as a true hero who never hesitates to disagree with the status quo either in her personal life or on the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court. A 2017 Honor book for younger readers.
