Elizabeth Warren's Big, Bold Plans
Table of Contents
About The Book
Discover the inspiring story of Senator Elizabeth Warren and her lifelong commitment to working hard and advocating for equality in this compelling and accessible picture book biography.
Elizabeth Warren always has a plan. As a child, she wanted to help others by becoming a teacher. When discrimination forced her to surrender that dream, she found another path: She became a lawyer. Then life changed again, and Elizabeth became a professor of law—and she didn’t stop there. No matter her job title, Senator Elizabeth Warren has always worked to ensure that people with more power help those with less. She leads by example, inspiring young people across the nation to pursue their dreams despite obstacles like prejudice and inequality. Known for her dedication and willingness to adapt, Elizabeth Warren has persisted and become a voice for fairness and positive change.
Now a presidential candidate, Senator Warren is a role model for the young people who will one day assume the mantle of leadership. And this gorgeously written, beautifully stylized picture book provides a pitch-perfect look at all they can accomplish.

Raves and Reviews
"The narrative concludes prior to the end of Warren’s presidential run and, although she did not get the nomination, the ending of the book is still hopeful and empowering. Readers are left with the feeling that improving the lives of others is the real goal and running for president is just one path to incite change. Chapman’s lovely watercolor illustrations bring Warren to life throughout the decades. Fans of her beloved golden retriever will be thrilled to spot Bailey in the background. . . . A laudatory biography of a leader in contemporary American politics."
