There’s a whole slew of picture books focusing on presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton that have just come out. It is incredible to read about all her accomplishments- and what else she has yet to accomplish.
Michelle Markel’s Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead seems to be the most kid-friendly (with LeUyen Pham’s signature illustrations) with an invitation for girls to pave their own way despite obstacles. I appreciate all the details Pham includes and the explanations of who the people are who she drew.
Skewing to a slightly older audience- and maybe adults will pick this up more- is Jonah Winter’s Hillary. Of the three picture books, this one feels more like an agenda book even though it does the same of sharing her story and just what her future might hold and what that might mean.
A balance of the two picture books I already mentioned is Kathleen Krull’s Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight. Alongside the facts are inspiring quotations. What I appreciated about his one was the detailed notes at the end of the book, which I actually enjoyed more than the story text!
