The author discusses her conviction, strengthened by long experience in public life, that children's development and their prospects for success are entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals. Senator Clinton's new introduction reflects on how our "village" has changed over a decade, issues of increasing concern such as security, the environment, and the national debt, and where we have made progress and where work remains to be done.

Good book. I was in my twenties when this book was published. I was 18 years old and remember Bill Clinton becoming President in the 1990's. I was young and not quite sure what that meant for America. I think that Hillary wrote a great novel and documented historical facts that are beneficial to any modern age - even in 2018, now approaching 2019.

I especially enjoyed learning about Hillary's upbringing and how she met Bill Clinton. My heart goes out to Bill, especially with what he had experienced growing up. I think that Hillary is a good person, excellent politician, and definitely a front runner in politics. Excellent job, career, and success.

Recently I watched some of the youtube footage about the campaigns to help women in the world. I think this is fantastic as the movement continues to reach success in 2018.

The Midterm election in November, 2018, 36 million early voters and women on board throughout the country. Congratulations to New Mexico and all the successful candidates.

I follow DemocracyNoW! Amy Goodman, The War on Peace Report, and have read the book, DemocracyNow! published in 2016. 11.16.18 broadcasts/podcasts about the articles following since Wikileaks, did I spell that right?

Equality is moving strong in America!

I got the book out for the illustrations which are a bit blurred. The Seven Silly Eaters is a much better book (words and pictures).
