Praise For Madam President: The Extraordinary, True (and Evolving) Story of Women in Politics…
"Delightful and informative ." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
A lively introduction to women's political achievements.
A sassily organized and argued rallying cry for girls-soon-to-be-women to stake a claim for Executive Office.
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Thimmesh treats subjects from every point on the political spectrum with enthusiasm and respect...an excellent primer in international women's political history.
VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates)
A good choice in this election year, Madam President is an entertaining and informative choice.
