Labor Day Weekend Picture Book Frenzy Book 2: She Was the First by Katheryn Russell-Brown and Eric Velasquez

Book Two for my Labor Day Weekend #picturebookfrenzy is by Katheryn Russell-Brown and Eric Velasquez! I won this book from a giveaway, so I want to say thank you Nerdy Book Club and Lee and Low Books for sharing this book with me.

She Was the First was an eye opener for me. I honestly was not aware of Shirley Chisholm and I feel awful for this, but am glad I am aware now. Learning how strong Shirley was, how she grew and found her passion as a legislator, and then how she campaigned to be the next US President was powerful. I loved how Katheryn and Eric shared her story in a format that will reach audiences of all ages. It’s time to spread Shirley’s story.

I am a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.
