Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - BriAnne Baxley MLIS
Written for early readers, this biography of Hillary Clinton provides its readers with condensed manageable paragraphs which help assist in the strengthening of reading skills. Formatted into simple two pages spreads, readers are given a small paragraph detailing highlights of Hillary Clinton's life with a photograph to coincide with a period of time. The pictures included vary between black and white, colored, and ones that look like they have been framed giving each page a different feel. The information touched upon includes Hillary Clinton's childhood, her family, and her continuous work within the government of the United States. On the bottom of every other page a timeline is included in order to pinpoint important years that have already been visited allowing the readers to remember what they have so far learned from the text. In the back of the book resources are provided for help with terminology, list of other readings, and websites to assist in continued research. Reviewer: BriAnne Baxley, MLIS
