Claudia Alta Taylor was born on December 22, 1912 in Texas. Her nanny called her Lady Bird because she was pretty. This book tells the life of Lady Bird Johnson from her birth to her days in school to marrying Lyndon B Johnson and becoming the First Lady of the United States. Lady Bird Johnson with the help of her husband was able to get Congress to pass the "Highway Beautification Act" which cleaned up all the roads across America and planted wildflowers in the trash and junk's place.Was this review helpful?

Why I liked this book - This is a great Nonfiction book! I like that it taught me about a person I didn't know about - "Lady Bird" Johnson (I think maybe a lot of kids don't know who she was). She was more than the wife of Lyndon B. Johnson (Heeeyy... I just realized! Both of their initials are "L.B.J." :) ). I liked learning about the National Wildflower Research Center that Lady Bird started and how they try to preserve wildflowers and birds. The story of her life is told in a nice way that was interesting to me. The story is pretty long and is a good picture book for older kids, but I think it would make a great read aloud for parents and kids. The illustrations are marvelous! When I was reading the book I thought the pictures really made me calm.
