Overview


Academy Award-winning actress Natalie Portman became a vegetarian when she was nine. Now a vegan, she is motivated both by animal rights and by the environmental costs associated with eating meat. This book introduces readers in grades 3-9 to the ways in which Portman speaks out on behalf of animal rights, as well as against harassment of women. Portman, who calls herself a science geek, works to promote educational opportunities for girls and women throughout the world. She's also a voice of the #MeToo movement.

This series of info-packed biographies introduces students to influential celebrities who use their fame to help others. These high-interest books feature stand-alone spreads, so readers can flip pages and read in any order. Glossary words are defined on the page where they appear, boosting reader comprehension.
