Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-A readable, interesting, and well-balanced portrait. Guernsey accurately recounts her subject's childhood in a Chicago suburb to her most current accomplishments. She explores the major influences that shaped Mrs. Clinton's life, making her a confident, determined, and successful woman. The author repeatedly mentions the First Lady's feminist beliefs, but explains how she has learned to balance her attitudes with those of more traditional segments of the population. The clearly and concisely written text is illustrated with a variety of appropriately placed full-color and black-and-white photographs. Guernsey incorporates quotes throughout, but they are all undocumented and many seem to come from private conversations. This makes the book inappropriate for reports. Information on Mrs. Clinton can be located in current periodicals and newspapers, but the only book available for this age group is Victoria Sherrow's Hillary Rodham Clinton (Macmillan, 1993).- April L. Judge, Jefferson Madison Regional Library, Charlottesville, VA
