Young Golda Meir was quick to take charge at the first meeting of the American Young Sisters Society: I 搉aturally appointed myself president. When the group falls short in its initial effort to raise money for new textbooks for immigrant school children in Milwaukee, she boldly approaches a local theater owner. 揑 need to borrow the hall for a public event. Her fundraising plan is a rally, at which she will appeal to the audience for donations. Her nerve almost fails her, but she steps out onto the stage and speaks. 揟he way I see it it抯 the community抯 responsibility to help Milwaukee kids who can抰 afford school books. I ask each of you to look into your hearts and wallets and give what you can. It抯 a rousing success. This spirited, engaging, warmly illustrated look at a single event from the childhood of Israel抯 first female prime minister is fictionalized but, notes the author, the events are true.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
