From Senator Kamala Harris comes a picture book with an empowering message: Superheroes are all around us--and if we try, we can all be heroes too. Now a #1 New York Times bestseller! Before Kamala Harris became a district attorney and a United States senator, she was a little girl who loved superheroes. And when she looked around, she was amazed to find them everywhere! In her family, among her friends, even down the street--there were superheroes wherever she looked. And those superheroes showed her that all you need to do to be a superhero is to be the best that you can be. In this empowering and joyful picture book that speaks directly to kids, Kamala Harris takes readers through her life and shows them that the power to make the world a better place is inside all of us. And with fun and engaging art by Mechal Renee Roe, as well as a guide to being a superhero at the end, this book is sure to have kids taking up the superhero mantle (cape and mask optional). Praise for Superheroes Are Everywhere: "This [book] offers a solid message: a superhero could be anyone, including you." --Booklist

Professional reviews

"Senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris reads her own work, which features everyday family and friends as superheros. Harris enthusiastically describes her earliest supporters and inspirations and kindly poses questions about who in young listeners' own lives champions them and their dreams. Harris is not a seasoned narrator, of course, but her earnestness is fitting for a text full of sentimentality and empowerment. She varies her pace and inflections when necessary, and the listener can hear her smiling as she thanks her loved ones for their encouragement. Harris's voice becomes the most natural and comfortable at the very end when she reads a timeline of her life and impressive accomplishments. Overall, Harris gives a spirited narration of her own story and uplifting message for children. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
