Follow Hillary Clinton’s inspiring life of service in this Step 3 Biography Reader! After volunteering as a young child, she became a leader in school and college, championed women’s and children’s causes as a young lawyer and wife of a politician, and finally became a politician herself. She has been our First Lady, a U.S. senator, the secretary of state, and the first woman candidate nominated for President of the United States by the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton has achieved so many “firsts” in her life, and she remains a "citizen activist" following the 2016 election.
Step 3 Readers feature engaging characters in easy-to-follow plots about popular topics—for children who are ready to read on their own.
