    1. I saw Beth s rating on this book and it brought back memories So, I got the book a few days later I love the DK books You are never to old to read them The first ladies and their stories are so interesting I never knew that Martha Washington s marriage to George was her second marriage What a huge event to happen to a single mom in those days To get remarried, AND THEN go on to be the first, of the First Ladies of America Single parents everywhere should raise their glass to Martha I can somewha [...]

    2. I found this while browsing the shelves at my local library An abbreviated overview of each our First Ladies along with interesting tidbits of information and related images Great for teens and leisure reading.

    3. I have fond memories of reading eyewitness books as a kid, and I remember the Mary Cassatt one in particular so I was pretty disappointed when I picked up this book It took me as a college student several days to get through as it was not compelling or interesting enough to engage me Granted I am not the target audience, but even so, informational texts such as this should have something to offer to every reader I also remember reading these books sort of piece meal as a kid anyway I much prefer [...]

    4. The weakest volume I ve encountered in this series Of course the pics are nice as is only to be expected from DK , and the material pretty much arranges itself But the text seems to have been written by a PR rep for NOW from press releases Actually, coverage of the early years of the republic went along smoothly enoughbut the closer we got to the present, the sillier things became For some reason Pastan intrudes a section on the 19th Amendment into the works even though the First Lady of the tim [...]

    5. This book was not my favorite by any means Firstly, while there is information provided about the first ladies, it is all very general and broad In other words, the information isn t really specific to any first lady, which made it hard for me to follow For example, the book only gives brief descriptions of the ladies while they lived in the White House and doesn t really talk about all of the wonderful things that they accomplished Also, this book is formatted like a textbook than an actual st [...]

    6. I found this book to have great pictures and fact about the First Ladies of the United States These picture and descriptions detailed what these ladies did while they lived in the White House However, I believe it only gives minimal detail about these ladies lives, not depicting all the wonderful things they did This is a good book for learning fact about what First Ladies do, but not about particular ones in general This is a good starting point to find out what First Ladies to read further abo [...]

    7. Almost every school library in America has the Eyewitness series, and my elementary school was no exception The one Eyewitness book I found on my own, however, was First Ladies This books contains many pictures as do most Eyewitness books The pictures, while good for keeping a young child s attention, don t help us get an accurate picture of the wonderful first ladies we ve had If anything, this is of a book about the first ladies stuff with a tiny paragraph or so dedicated to the first ladies [...]

    8. Lucy Hayes was the first college graduate to hold the position of first lady.Edith Wilson was anti suffrage despite the 19th amendment being passed while she was in office.Eleanor Roosevelt was an amazing humanitarian.I enjoyed this It was a quick read obviously My Grandma used to give me Eyewitness books as a child They have just a teaser of information about the subject which works since they re mostly childrens books For someone who just wants a taste of information, they re a good starting p [...]

    9. There is not a lot of new information here obviously, but that is not what these DK Eyewitness Books are supposed to provide This book is a great introduction to all the women who have been First Ladies throughout America s history, with just a few facts and notable events or particulars that give a little personality to each woman Other than a few famous first ladies, most of the women written about here will be new to most readers, so everyone is sure to learn something no matter what age you [...]

    10. I enjoyed this book and the detailed accounts it provides of each first lady, from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama It gives details on their experiences in the white house, the clothes they wore, and different artifacts they had.The amazing artwork,photographs, and summarizes of the first ladies experience are given in a detailed concise manner.I feel that this book would be a great resource to have in a classroom It could be used during different units of American history, specifically when [...]

    11. This is a great book about the First Ladies of the United States of America It includes pictures and facts about what they did when they lived in the White House This is a good book to use to teach about famous women.

    12. Beautiful, informative summary of the First Ladies of the United States of America Loads of photographs and paintings Full of little known facts and information.

    13. first Ladies is filled with interesting facts, family pictures and tells stories how each first lady helped change the history of our country From Martha Washington to our First Lady today, Melania Trump.Chris S.

    14. This thin book caught my eye when our library displayed it during Women s History Month The First Ladies are presented in chronological order with a short biography and pictures of primary documents related to the First Lady being featured Many of the primary documents and pictures are probably housed in the Smithsonian Museum Most of the First Ladies are featured on one page, but some received attention.A book to read and reread for every aged reader
