"All the Way to the Top: How One Girl's Fight for Americans with Disabilities Changed Everything" by Annette Bay Pimentel

Age: 4-8 years

Jennifer never thought her wheelchair could slow her down, but the way the world around her was built made it hard to do even simple things. She was determined to make a change, even if she was just a kid. “All the Way to the Top: How One Girl's Fight for Americans with Disabilities Changed Everything” (Sourcebooks Explore) is the true story of lifelong activist Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins and her participation in the Capitol Crawl to advocate for the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Annette Bay Pimentel is currently a resident of Idaho, though she has spent time living in places all over the U.S., as well as Europe and Africa. She writes nonfiction picture books about people from the margins of history who helped shape our world.
