Clinton writes in the authors note :

“Now more than ever,” Clinton writes, “we need to support children and families. And when the news is grim and or the odds seem long, look into the faces of children you know, and imagine what kind of country and world awaits them. . . . This book is meant to spark a conversation with our youngest about what children can do to help make the world what they hope it will be.”
