9780062381224: Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead

In the spirit of Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope and Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride comes an inspiring portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the first female presidential nominee in United States history: a girl who fought to make a difference--and paved the way for women everywhere--from Michelle Markel and LeUyen Pham.

In the 1950s, it was a man's world. Girls weren't supposed to act smart, tough, or ambitious. Even though, deep inside, they may have felt that way. And then along came Hillary. Brave, brilliant, and unstoppable, she was out to change the world.

They said a woman couldn't be a mother and a lawyer. Hillary was both. They said a woman shouldn't be too strong or too smart. Hillary was fearlessly herself.

It didn't matter what people said--she was born to lead.

With illustrations packed full of historical figures and details, this gorgeous and informative picture book biography is perfect for every budding leader. Includes a timeline, artist's note, and bibliography.

Review:

Praise for BRAVE GIRL: The zingy images masterfully (and appropriately) incorporate fabric and stitches as well as old images of checks and time cards This book has fighting spirit in spades-you go, Clara! --Booklist (starred review)"

Praise for BRAVE GIRL: Readers are treated to solid information with a buoyant message about standing up for what is right. Sweet has created an outstanding backdrop for Markel s text with a vibrant collage of watercolor, gouache, blank dress-pattern paper, bookkeeping pages, stitches, and fabric pieces. --School Library Journal (starred review)"

Praise for BRAVE GIRL: Sweet incorporates images of assorted fabrics and stitch patterns into her tender illustrations, brightening the lives of workers whose reality was bleak. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Praise for BRAVE GIRL: In her simple but powerful text Markel shows how multiple arrests, serious physical attacks, and endless misogyny failed to deter this remarkable woman as she set off on her lifelong path as a union activist. --The Horn Book"

Praise for BRAVE GIRL: Markel ably brings to life the plight of immigrant garment workers and Clara s courageous advocacy. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

Praise for TYRANNOSAURUS MATH: This is a clever addition to the growing number of books that make a sometimes daunting subject both more understandable and just plain fun. --School Library Journal"

Praise for ALL THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT YOU: In capturing the goofy spontaneity of affection and everyday family life without a whiff of treacle, Pham proves once again that she s among the most natural and gifted illustrators working today. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Praise for VAMPERINA BALLERINA: Pace and Pham have choreographed a delightful tale ... readers will applaud this elegantly designed, well-told story. Brava, indeed. --Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for GRACE FOR PRESIDENT: Pham s deeply toned opaque and textured paintings of a multicultural group of children bring out the various details of each phase of a campaign. A timely, well-constructed explanation brought down to a level anyone can comprehend. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Praise for BIG SISTER, LITTLE SISTER: Pham lends a fresh and funny perspective to the pros and cons of being second in the birth order...Pham has beautifully captured the touch-and-go affection that is a verity of sibling life. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Praise for BIG SISTER, LITTLE SISTER: The illustrations have a bold, retro quality, and the examples of frustration and adoration are utterly familiar and timeless. --New York Times Book Review"

Praise for A PIECE OF CAKE: Captured in warm and bright illustrations that anthropomorphize animal friends, this story about doing the right thing and the power of friendship is a strong choice for story hours and classroom read-alouds. --Booklist"

Praise for A PIECE OF CAKE: A treat of a birthday picture book. --Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for A PIECE OF CAKE: This will work remarkably well in a storytime setting, and there are plenty of opportunities for curricular tie-ins (particularly prediction and inference) for a school setting. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

Smart and snappy as inspiring as it is delightful. --Booklist (starred review)"

Concisely outlines Clinton s journey from activist to First Lad of Arkansas and on to Washington, D.C .Pham s (the Freckleface Strawberry series) watercolors are steeped in period detail. --Publishers Weekly"
