Arlington ISD Review of Michelle Obama: Advocate and Role Model
One positive aspect of this book is that it focuses on Michelle Obama’s life broadly, not just in her role as US First Lady. Readers learn about her “Humble Beginnings,” growing up in a home where she had to sleep in the living room, separated by a hanging sheet from her brother’s bed. They learn how she went on to academic and professional success before meeting Barack Obama. A timeline is included, as well as a glossary, index, and link to online resources. This is part of an eclectic six-book series that includes books on America Ferrera, Christina Koch, Jimmy Carter, John Lewis, and Michael Jordan.
