All the Way to the Top: How One Girl’s Fight for Americans with Disabilities Changed Everything
All the Way to the Top is a true story about a girl named Jennifer, who has a walking disability. When Jennifer is old enough to go to school, she is so excited and can’t wait, but the school says that she can’t go because of her wheelchair. Her mom finds a different school, but Jennifer is only able to come to that school part of the day. Jennifer’s family finds a group of people who have different types of disabilities and they start protesting all over the country for disability rights. Jennifer is only a girl, but she went all the Washington to protest for congress to pass the ADA, Americans with Disabilities Act.
I really liked reading All the Way to the Top because I love reading stories that are based on real people. I learned that there used to be a time when kids with disabilities couldn’t attend school, and if they did they couldn’t do things like each lunch in the cafeteria with the other kids. I really liked the illustrations and the photograph of the real Jennifer crawling up the steps in Washington. I would recommend All the Way to the Top to kids who might have a disability or to kids who like to learn about real people.
