Hillary by Jonah Winter -NO

Winter, Jonah Hillary 20 pgs. Schwartz & Wade (Random House), 2016. $17.99 PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION

This book is a biography of Hillary Clintons life featuring her traditional 1950s childhood, her famous speech in college, and her continued work on the women’s “liberation” movement. It exemplifies her hard work and her accomplishments. The artwork is very stylized and muted.

This a very concise biography without being too overwhelming for a read-a-loud, but its fairly subdued as compared to the Michelle Markel version. It is strongly pro-Hillary, and is far from a unbiased detached biography. Just give me a balanced biography for kids. Enough details, like political terminology and historical events, that it would probably work best for 3 grade and up. I preferred the Michelle Markel version to this one.
