Superheroes Are Everywhere
by Kamala Harris

Flap Copy Description:
Before Kamala Harris became a district attorney and a United States senator, she was a little girl who loved superheroes. And when she looked around, she was amazed to find them everywhere! In her family, among her friends, even down the street--there were superheroes wherever she looked. And those superheroes showed her that all you need to do to be a superhero is to be the best that you can be.

In this empowering and joyful picture-book memoir that speaks directly to kids, Kamala Harris takes readers through her life and shows them that the power to make the world a better place is inside all of us. And with fun and engaging art by Mechal Renee Roe, as well as a guide to being a superhero at the end, this book is sure to have kids taking up the superhero mantle (cape and mask optional).

My Thoughts:
Kamala Harris recently officially announced that she will be running for President of the United States in 2020. It's common for a candidate to release a book during a campaign, but Superheroes Are Everywhere is fantastic! In it she tells young readers that superheroes can be found in one's family, school, neighborhood, and, of course, in a circle of friends. Even the senator's own childhood heroes are featured. I highly recommend Superheroes Are Everywhere to all young readers.
