Everyone has read about history’s most important people and events in dense textbooks and classrooms, but words can only say so much. In Charles River Editors’ Interactive Biography for Kids series, history comes to life in video and audio, allowing your children to not only read history but truly experience it, through the eyes and ears of the people who were there.






It would be impossible to sum up the life and legacy of Bill Clinton in one sentence or even one paragraph, as the former president represents many different things to many different people. Indeed, the yin and yang of Clinton’s life and career are inescapable. Widely hailed as the greatest politician of his era, Clinton proved to be his own worst enemy, creating unnecessary scandals through his womanizing. Clinton was one of the first politicians to truly connect with young adults, yet in the process he provided ludicrous soundbytes like “I did not inhale.” Long considered the Democratic Party’s greatest spokesman and surrogate, Clinton’s presidency was defined by centrist “triangulation”. And though he is still publicly popular and considered a great president, Clinton became just the second president to be impeached in the House of Representatives.






Regardless of what Americans think of him, one thing Clinton does represent is the American Dream. Born to a single mother in Hope, Arkansas, Clinton used his ambition, hard work and intelligence to become a Rhodes scholar. As a teenager, a meeting with President Kennedy helped drive him toward politics, which he pursued after getting his law degree at Yale, where he met future wife Hillary Rodham.






In 1992, Clinton truly became “The Comeback Kid”, managing to win the Democratic primaries after losing the first two primaries, and going on to defeat incumbent President George H.W. Bush. After a failed healthcare reform initiative and huge Republican gains in the midterm elections of 1994, Clinton moved to the middle, governing as a centrist. And as the first president with a full term in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution, Clinton was widely responsible for charting a new foreign policy course for the U.S., which was now the world’s sole superpower. His foreign interventions in places like Bosnia and Somalia greatly influenced future projections of American power and global events.






Clinton left office with budget surpluses and a high approval rating, despite the never-ending controversies swirling around him, and he has since doubled as a political surrogate and global ambassador for his country. An Interactive Biography of Bill Clinton for Kids chronicles Clinton’s life and career, including all of its famous highs and infamous lows, as well as the controversies and legacy he left in his wake. Along with videos and pictures of important people, places, and events in his life, your kids will learn about The Comeback Kid like never before.
