Summary
This is THE picture book biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton, publishing in time for the presidential election of 2016.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Over the summer, a reporter e-mailed to ask about Hillary Clinton books aimed at kids for an article she was writing. I replied that almost all of the titles available were in series about first ladies or famous women, but that as election time grew closer, there should be more.The election may be a year away but, to say the least, the books have begun to arrive. Jonah Winter and Raul Colón combine their talents in Hillary (2016), starring a Hillary they feel is justifiably comparable to Queen Elizabeth I and Joan of Arc. Using just two spreads to move their subject through childhood and college, and two more to get her into the White House, the book then skips over the more unseemly parts of the Clinton presidency to touch upon her run for the senate and then presidency. Winter's focus on Clinton's time as secretary of state, and quotes and anecdotes, especially in relation to work for women's rights, do offer plenty of food for thought. Much of the art is portraiture, giving ample opportunity to display Hillary's myriad hairstyles, though this may confuse readers, especially when a pageboy and a French roll appear on the same page. Still, both this visual focus and ardent text make it possible for young readers to see Clinton as a real woman who may soon change the world. If the last election taught us anything, it's far too early to be fitting the Oval Office chair quite yet, but these four books make clear that, regardless of the outcome, Clinton's place in history is already secure.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Winter (The Founding Fathers!) kicks off his enthusiastic profile of 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton by ranking her as the modern-day successor to Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc, and Rosie the Riveter. He traces the roots of Clinton's intellect and ambition to her childhood as a take-charge tomboy and excellent student. Readers learn how her outspoken nature, drive to excel, and growing passion for public service fueled her rise to academic heights in college and a successful law career, as well as advocacy for women and children. Winter focuses on Clinton's professional achievements ("But why stop at the Senate? Hillary was the first First Lady to run for president!") and resilience rather than a precise time line, though he includes several significant dates and expresses support for Clinton's current run for the presidency in an author's note. Much of Colón's mixed-media artwork takes its inspiration from familiar photographs of Clinton on the job and in the spotlight. But he also captures several private moments (Bill and Hillary welcoming baby Chelsea, Hillary working alone at her desk) in what feel more like personal family photos. Ages 4-8.
