Just over a week after Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was named Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, publisher Simon & Schuster is announcing the publication of a new children’s picture book about her life.
The publisher announced on Wednesday that it will release a new children’s book, “Kamala Harris, Rooted in Justice,” which will tell the “incredible story of a young daughter of immigrants who would grow up to defend the rights of people everywhere and be named the Democratic vice presidential candidate.”
The book is scheduled to be published on August 25. It is written by Nikki Grimes and features illustrations by Laura Freeman.
“This picture book biography brings to life a story that shows all young people that the American dream can belong to all of us if we fight for one another,” the publisher said in its announcement.
Biden announced on August 11 that he had chosen Harris to be his running mate, as IJR reported.
If Biden defeats Trump in the general election in November, Harris would be the first Black woman to serve as vice president.
