Sharice’s Big Voice

A Native Kid Becomes a Congresswoman

Written by Sharice Davids with Nancy K. Mays, Illustrated by Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley

Sharice Davids is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation in Wisconsin. Her people call themselves “People of the Big Voice”. Not only has she used her voice to communicate. She practices listening to others as well. Her journey from childhood to congress is an interesting read. The Ojibwe Woodland art style does a beautiful job of representing the story.

This would be a good book for kids to check out to do research on people in government or from a Native American tribe. I’m concerned that children will have a hard time finding this book unless an adult assigns it to them. But when they do find it, I believe they will be inspired.
