HOUSTON - Kamala Harris becoming the Vice President of our nation is an ambitious endeavor her niece is translating through a children’s book now available.
The children’s book is called "Ambitious Girl" released on Inauguration Day across the world.
Houstonian Ashly Thompson ordered several copies right away.
"When I saw the book, I was so excited, because of not only it is a new book, but also the representation in the book."
The book represents Vice President Kamala Harris’s ambition. It’s written by her niece, Meena Harris, who was fed up by some accusing her aunt, Kamala, as being too ambitious to be vice president.
Meena wrote the book to show girls it’s a good thing to have big dreams and be ambitious.
That important message is why Thompson ordered four, for all the girls in her family.
"Just to show them that you can be anybody you want. You can do anything that you want as long as you have drive and determination," said Thompson. "Just reminding those little girls, no matter what society says, no matter what anybody says, if you need a reassurance, open this book."
