Children's Literature
This biography about Hillary Rodham Clinton is part of a series produced by Learner and A&E. The text is easy to read and understand for any student interested in or assigned to read a biography for a class assignment. The brief three-page introduction does an exemplary job of presenting the pivotal point in her career where she is no longer First Lady of the United States, but is solicited by Democrats to run for the U.S. Senate seat in New York and is successfully elected. The eight chapters of the biography are concisely written and engaging for the reader. Photographs are found throughout the book and one can find information tables on the party issues, her hero Eleanor Roosevelt, and her meetings with famous worldwide individuals. The author's perspective is not biased but presents the facts on Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has made a name for herself. The chronological information in each of the chapters helps the reader better understand her as private person and public political representative. 2005, Lerner Publications Company, Ages 12 up.

Gr 6-9-A fine portrait of the former First Lady and current senator from New York. The text covers Clinton's many achievements, from her efforts to reform health care to writing books to working as a successful lawyer. Guernsey does not shy away from the controversial aspects of her subject's story, from her husband's impeachment trial to Clinton's "imaginary conversations" with Eleanor Roosevelt. The text also enumerates the criticism she has received, but balances it with plenty of positive comments. Average-quality, black-and-white and full-color photographs and a clean design round out this solid biography.-Kristen Oravec, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Strongsville, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
