The high-profile life of Hillary Clinton gets fine treatment in this book from A True Book: Biography series. Beginning with her youth, this title moves to her days in Arkansas, her life as First Lady, and then on to her own political career as senator from New York, presidential candidate, and secretary of state. The information is well presented (though trouble spots like Whitewater and the Lewinsky affair only get a sentence or two). The photographs are strong throughout and appear on every page—the black-and-white ones from the early days are especially interesting—and do an excellent job of tracing Clinton’s career (and ever-changing hairstyles). The invitation to “Find the Truth!” hidden in the book’s text is a little lame (“T or F: Hillary Clinton was the first president’s wife elected to Congress?”), but kids can learn more at Scholastic’s website. Grades 3-6. --Ilene Cooper
