#Review: Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Just Born To Lead by Michelle Markel / Illustrated by LeUyen Pham #atozchallenge


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 review:
Aside from whatever political leanings you or I have, this book is not only cute but timely. Girls need to know that they can be strong and lead in whatever capacity they want, president of the student body or President of the United States. Girls can dream to be anything.

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.

Where to find the author:



  1. I like your review but this is a book I'd pass on. There are so many great women leaders, it seems like the author could have chosen a person with less questionable behaviors especially since the book is geared towards young children.
