Children Ages 4-6 • 8 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

Written and narrated by the niece of vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, this uplifting audiobook was inspired by a true story from Kamala's childhood involving her sister Maya. With a fast pace and a bold, confident tone, Harris describes the young sisters' idea to turn the unused courtyard of their apartment building into a playground. Harris brings a dramatic flair to her narration that will engage listeners even if they aren't familiar with the real-life characters. Listeners hear the girls' exasperation when everyone says no to their project and their exuberance as they persist to achieve their goal. The author's note conveys a personal connection and describes her admiration for both her mother and her aunt's "fierce determination to conquer the world."
