Collier's collage and watercolor artwork is, as ever, gobsmacking. Charles' poetic text is supported by back matter on "historic figures and contributions in We Are Here: Muddy Waters, Ella Fitzgerald, Howlin' Wolf, Marian Anderson, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., foods, and fashion. There is also a glossary (words in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and French), an author's note, and an illustrator's note.

A lovely and compelling biography of the first Black woman Supreme Court justice. This is an excellent introduction to Brown Jackson for children and all readers. I would like to read a full length biography about her, one written for adults, and with photos. I wish that there had been photos in this book, not just of the subject at different ages but also of her family and others. Her daughter Leila seems really cool and I assume that her other daughter is too.

I gained even more appreciation for her reading about her hard work and also about how she learned various stills and participated in a variety of activities in her youth. I greatly admire this woman.

In addition to covering her life the book does an excellent job of covering her family history and history in general.

I recommend this book particularly to children old enough to appreciate the extra information in the back (Author’s Note, Important Dates, Important People and History Shown in the Art, and a Bibliography) because the information really enhances the book. Younger children can get a lot from just the story proper too.

The storytelling style (with the illustrations playing a part) took a bit of getting used to for me but then I really appreciated it and I think that it will appeal to children, the target audience.

The illustrations are good and fun to view. I thought it was good & effective that they are rooted in current times and liked that a couple of people wearing (covid) masks is shown.
