A Must Read Book for Girls!

5 Apr

Regardless of your political party – I highly recommend the book “Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight“, written by Kathleen Krull, for young girls.

My almost 5 year-old daughter, Julia, loves this book.  A simple, interesting and informative biography on Hillary Rodham Clinton that is inspirational and a perfect read for preschoolers to lower elementary age kids.  It was great to read this with my daughter and be able to show Julia photos and video clips of Hillary on the internet.  Again, regardless of political party, an inspirational/role model of a lady!

A great overview of Clinton’s life. From her thwarted childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut to her decision to sail through the clouds in a presidential bid, Clinton overcame numerous obstacles in the way of advancement for women.  Hand-lettered inspirational quotations appear on each spread.  Attractive watercolor, gouache, and pencil illustrations depict Hillary’s disappointments and achievements.
