First Ladies (What's the Big Deal About)

SKU E1657

In this chapter book filled with fun facts and historical trivia about first ladies from Martha Washington to Melania Trump, civic-minded young readers learn just how important it is to "Remember the ladies!" and all they have done for America.

Did you know that Mary Todd Lincoln hated slavery and helped to end it in America? Or that Edith Wilson helped decode secret messages during World War I? How about that Sarah Polk didn't let anyone dance in the White House while she was first lady? It's true!

In addition to being hostesses, advocates, ambassadors, activists, patriots, and role models, each first lady put her own stamp on the White House--and on our country. In this fun-filled, fact-filled book, you can find out just what made each first lady unique and why they were so important. As it turns out, first ladies are a pretty big deal after all!
