“[An] honest and open portrayal” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

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 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)

When Hillary Clinton was a young lady, these things did not seem to exist for someone like her or any young girl but she made it happen and girls today can too. This is the story of how HillaryClinton grew up and did many things and still is making things happen today for herself. To this day, she encourages women all around the world to stand up and be counted.
This book is up-to-date and includes a timeline right up to 2015 when she announced her candidacy for President. My favorite is the one with Hillary Clinton and world doers and leaders.The illustrator includes notes in the back of the myriad of photos and articles she read in order to get correct drawings of Hillary Clinton.
I think this is a great book and I give it a 5 stars review.

As Kyle Smith wrote "Little Hillary, looking spunky in a bright-red dress, is set off against a gray and brown array of celebrated men of the time, including Nat King Cole and Jackie Robinson. “Only boys had no ceilings on their dreams,” go the harrumphing words.
So Nat King Cole, who was once attacked on stage during a concert by a gang of white supremacists, and Jackie Robinson, a sharecropper who on the baseball field had to listen to an opposing manager yell the N-word at him and shout “go back to the cotton fields,” had it easy compared to Hillary, the daughter of a wealthy businessman? And not only did they have it easy, they were part of a nefarious male conspiracy to hold back women."
ICKY, really not want you what children to read.
The drawings, by the way, were LOVELY. Both the anecdotes and illustrations were well done. Kudos to the authors.
I enjoyed Hillary's background information. I had no idea that she was such an active community organizer when she was young. Girls and women need all the role models they can get, especially in American politics. This book definitely fills that need.
The illustrations are also very thoughtful. I like the back matter explaining the illustrators choices. I highly recommend this book!
