Summary

Children’s Book Guild Nonfiction Award-winner Kathleen Krull is an expert at bringing history to life in her engaging titles and series, including Women Who Broke the Rules, Lives of . . . , Giants of Science, and A Kid’s Guide to America’s Bill of Rights. This time, she introduces readers to the women of the White House in A Kid’s Guide to America’s First Ladies! The book includes a section introducing kids to Melania Trump.

Find out what our country’s First Ladies thought, did, and advocated for as they moved into the White House.

  • Why did the Patriots love Martha Washington?
  • What causes did Eleanor Roosevelt support and lead?
  • What did Jacqueline Kennedy do to establish her legacy long after she left the White House?
  • How did Hillary Clinton turn her role as First Lady into a political career of her own?

Packed with anecdotes and sidebars, a timeline of the advancement of women’s rights, and humorous illustrations and portraits, Kathleen Krull’s introduction to the First Ladies of the United States brings vividly to life the women to hold the role as they paved the way for American women in times of change.
