Barbara Bush: First Lady

Barbara Bush: First Lady

by Rose Blue, Corinne J. Naden

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- A mediocre volume that will have great difficulty finding an audience. Poorly organized, it skips from topic to topic, usually without transitions, and with only loose adherence to chronology. Although Blue and Naden provide some useful background information about the First Lady's causes and projects, there are far too many extraneous details, such as a list of the Bush children and grandchildren; a long, involved look at the books ``written'' by the family dogs; and an examination of a rug Bush made. These sections do not add to readers' understanding of either Bush or her husband. Many of the black-and-white photos have been used in other sources. The tone of the book is admiring, but it reads much like an expanded magazine article, offering no insights into its subject's character or her political beliefs. In fact, most of the sources listed are from popular periodicals such as People, Time , and Good Housekeeping . There is nothing in this title to warrant its place on most library shelves. --Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
