Laura's List presents the First Lady's published list of recommended books, and builds on her public commitment to books and learning. Parents need basic tools to give their children opportunities to grow, and here is an easy-to-understand guide to great reading for kids-from a highly visible source, Laura Bush.
Mrs. Bush's own background and dedication to reading gives rise to this collection and can inspire others to take up her passion for reading as a means to expanding a child's world.
Simple and powerful in conception, Laura's List discusses each book that our First Lady has publicly recommended, providing summaries and excerpts. It examines the values taught by each selection, and offers a reader's guide, listing prevalent themes and questions to ask after reading.
Also Included are:
- a short biography of the First Lady;
- appendices of themes found in each book; and
- Laura Bush's reading recommendations for adults.show more
