As people prepare to watch the third and final debate tonight I wanted to share with you a fabulous book that we have enjoyed reading all about Hillary Rodham Clinton this week.
Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight by Kathleen Krull and Amy June Bates is a great story to share with petites about a remarkable women who has accomplished so many things. This story starts out with a young Hillary dreaming of becoming an astronaut in 1961, a job not possible for her at the time. This book is filled with inspiration on every page.
Take the lead role in your own life
After reading this story with my girls and a few other books about Hillary Clinton we decided that this one was our favorite, because, according to my seven year old, the story just makes you feel good and she kept going even when it was tough.
Take a risk, and dare to change the world
The book is not only a very well written story, but is also filled with facts at the end of the book so that you can read about the accomplishments, contributions and history that Hillary has made.
The illustrations have a wonderful sketchbook, retro feel about them. They also provide fantastic talking points throughout the reading to discuss how the people in the illustrations are feeling and treating young Hillary. This book is geared toward a kindergarten – fifth grade audience.
