A Spirited Field Guide for Kids on Women in Politics
Strong, dynamic illustrations and capsule biographies of women in American politics (and beyond) from Abigail Adams through Benazir Bhutto and Hillary Clinton, set in a frame tale of a bunch of kids telling each other, “When I grow up, I want to be…” The sheer diversity and abundance of these stories of women in power is amazing!
I’m giving this as a birthday gift to my niece O., who is 223 years and 2 days younger than our country this Sunday. She loves studying the Presidents, knows them all by heart, has met Hillary Clinton, and has corresponded with Laura Bush. Maybe she really will grow up to be President some day….
