Praise for Ruth Objects:

ALSC Notable Children’s Books 
2021 RISE List Top Ten

Bank Street College of Education Best Books of 2021

"Velasquez's arresting jacket portrait of Ginsburg, superimposed on a facsimile of the U.S. Constitution, conveys a woman of purpose; Rappaport's biography, largely focused on Ginsburg's work for gender equality, reinforces this first impression."―
Horn Book

"Striking."
Booklist

"Insightful and fascinating."
Kirkus Reviews

"[A] well-researched picture book biography."
Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
