Bibliophile's Corner

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Some Girls Are Born to Lead
Written by Michelle Markel
Illustrated by LeUyen Pham

Flap Copy Description:
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.

My Thoughts:
Whether you're voting Democratic, Republican, or Independent in this year's presidential election, it's most important that we all remember to VOTE! That being said, I felt a review for this delightful picture book by Michelle Markel & LeUyen Pham was timely. I loved it! It not only documents the amazing life of Hillary Rodham Clinton, but reminds young readers that indeed, "some girls are born to lead!" A group of prominent women is featured in an illustration toward the end of the book; females of all political persuasions, faiths, & races are included, making this book a perfect choice for any young reader in your life.
