The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. The ADA requires reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities and accessibility to public spaces. Before the act was passed, disabilities rights activists shed their assistive devices and crawled up the 100 steps of the Capitol to show support for the bill.
ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP by Annette Bay Pimentel tells the true story of Jennifer Keelan, a second grader with cerebral palsy who participated in the “Capitol Crawl” and other activities to promote awareness of disabilities.
Jennifer Keelan describes her experience climbing the Capitol Steps in a YouTube video. Learn about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the US Department of Justice website.

Foreword by Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins

What it says on the tin (subtitle): the book describes Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins' fight for equal treatment for those with disabilities - including children. Jennifer's cerebral palsy means she uses a wheelchair to get around, and she faces discrimination from school administration as well as other students. "Jennifer knows they're wrong. She's just a friend waiting to happen! But how do you change someone's mind?" Jennifer gets involved in activism, even flying to DC for a march at the Capitol. When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is passed, the changes don't come overnight, but it's progress.

There is a pattern of STOP and GO in the book: Jennifer's eagerness to charge ahead, and the obstacles in her way. But her determination, and support from her parents and other activists, means they don't stop her for long.

Back matter includes "The Road to the Top," more information about the fight for disability rights, cerebral palsy, the ADA, and the Capitol Crawl. There's also "Life Before and After the ADA," a timeline, and a bibliography. ( )

"Agirl with cerebral palsy fights for the 1990 passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Whether she’s horseback riding or starting kindergarten, Jennifer Keelan’s “ready to GO!” But all around her, places and people demand that she “STOP!” From her wheelchair, a 4-inch curb is a “cliff,” and she’s not allowed to join her classmates in the cafeteria. Everything changes when Jennifer—knowing that “children with disabilities get ignored too”—joins a diverse group of disability rights activists. When Jennifer is 8, activists propose the ADA to “make room for all people, including those with disabilities.” Dismissed by Congress, disabled activists crawl up the steps of the Capitol to be heard. When grown-ups say she’s too young to participate, Jennifer drags herself “ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP” on behalf of disabled kids everywhere. Ali’s soft-focus illustrations deftly convey Jennifer’s determined scowl and excited grin. Pimentel realistically acknowledges that the ADA hasn’t fixed everything—“Slowest of all, minds have to change”—but in her foreword, the adult Jennifer—now Keelan-Chaffins—notes that she keeps “using [her] voice to speak up” and encourages readers to do likewise. Backmatter further discusses disabilities, the disability rights movement, and the ADA. Front- and backmatter seem geared toward older readers, who may find the main text a tad too simple; those wanting more information should follow this up with Amy Hayes’ Disability Rights Movement (2017). Jennifer and her family present white; classmates’ and activists’ races vary.

A necessary testament to the power of children’s voices. (notes, timeline, bibliography)" From Kirkus Reviews, www.kirkusreviews.com

All The Way To The Top is a story of a courageous young girl who was born with cerebral palsy. The world is not made accessible to her or those with other disabilities and she knows that is wrong. Through using her voice as a young child, she fights for equality of those with disabilities. This is a wonderful and historic book that teaches courage and strength. It also shows what we take for granted each day. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to teach acceptance, perspective, and bravery. ( )
