Grade 3-5-- A concise and very readable series entry. Beginning with her childhood on a ranch in Arizona, Gherman recounts O'Connor's education and work as a lawyer and judge. O'Connor's basic philosophy, "The individual can make things happen," is cited as an underlying factor in her confident and successful life and career. This is an adequate source for reports and leisure reading. The black-and-white illustrations are merely decorative; they are not as informative or as authoritative as photographs. For younger children, Carol Greene's Sandra Day O'Connor: First Woman on the Supreme Court (Childrens, 1982) is comparable in scope and style. Judith Bentley's Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (S . & S . , 1983), Harold and Geraldine Wood's Equal Justice (Dillon, 1985), and Peter Huber's Sandra Day O'Connor (Chelsea, 1990) are geared for older children. --April L.
