INSPIRED BY A TRUE STORY FROM THE CHILDHOOD OF VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS!

A beautiful, empowering picture book about two sisters who work with their community to effect change, inspired by a true story from the childhood of the author’s aunt, Kamala Harris, and mother, lawyer and policy expert Maya Harris.

“A must read for little girls around the world.” —Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator from Massachusetts

“An inspiring tale.” —Stacey Abrams, Former Minority Leader, Georgia House of Representatives; Founder and Chair, Fair Fight Action

“I love this book.” —Megan Rapinoe, Co-Captain, U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team

One day, Kamala and Maya had an idea. A big idea: They would turn their empty apartment courtyard into a playground!
