From a Small Seed - The Story of Eliza Hamilton: The Story of Eliza Hamilton
$18.99

A lyrical picture book biography of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, co-founder and director of the first private orphanage in New York City and wife of founding father Alexander Hamilton.

Ever since she was a young girl, Eliza Hamilton hoped to help people in need. From the private quarters of her family home to her national platform as Hamilton's partner, Eliza was a lifelong advocate for fairness, freedom and faith. The remarkable acts of charity and public service she performed after Alexander's death are considered a significant contribution to the Hamilton legacy the world celebrates today. Here is a thoughtful, historical account of her life beginning with her childhood influences.

Much like the award-winning picture book biographies that celebrate trailblazing women like The House that Jane Built: A Story About Jane Addams and Hillary Rodham Clinton: Some Girls Are Born to Lead, Camille Andros and Tessa Blackham's From a Small Seed--The Story of Eliza Hamilton is an accessible portrait of an exemplary public figure whose principles have stood the test of time.
