Review: Michelle Obama is such an incredibly inspiring and powerful woman and I am so happy she has been included in this series. She is a wonderful woman for young girls in particular to look up too and think I want to be like her.
This book shares in a simple and easy way for younger readers all that she did in her life to get to where she is now, from her family struggles, to being pushed down by her teachers, to rising above it all and reaching the very top, to all the kindness and love she shares from her heart to help others constantly.
I love this book and am so happy it exists, if you are a fan of this book series you need this one, if you have a little dreamer of your own you need this book.
