2016 Democratic Nominee for President of the United States

In celebration of the tenth anniversary of It Takes a Village, this splendid edition includes photographs and a new Introduction by Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A decade ago, then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton chronicled her quest--both deeply personal and, in the truest sense, public--to help make our society into the kind of village that enables children to become smart, able, resilient adults. It Takes a Village is "a textbook for caring....Filled with truths that are worth a read, and a reread" (The Dallas Morning News).

For more than thirty-five years, Senator Clinton has made children her passion and her cause. Her long experience--not only through her roles as mother, daughter, sister, and wife but also as advocate, legal expert, and public servant--has strengthened her conviction that how children develop and what they need to succeed are inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals. In other words, it takes a village to raise a child.

In her new Introduction, Senator Clinton reflects on how our village has changed over the last decade--from the impact of the Internet to new research in early child development and education. She discusses issues of increasing concern--security, the environment, the national debt--and looks at where we have made progress and where there is still work to be done.

It Takes a Village has become a classic. As relevant as ever, this anniversary edition makes it abundantly clear that the choices we make today about how we raise our children and how we support families will determine how our nation will face the challenges of this century.

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. It all still just as fantastic as the movement continues to reach success in 2018, 2019.

"We will rise, in justice, peace, and equality, indeed."

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 democracynow.org broadcasts/podcasts about the articles following since Wikileaks.

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).
