School Library Journal
A well-researched, thoughtfully written, attractive account. Fact boxes provide basic information such as birth and death dates, marriage dates, and children's names; a "Did You Know" section shares interesting personal tidbits. Periodic time lines help to place the women's lives within the broader events of history. There is enough information here for simple reports. Interesting facts and anecdotes will hold readers' attention (Rachel Jackson was charged with bigamy, Lucy Hayes refused to serve alcohol in the White House, and Frances Cleveland was the only First Lady to marry in the White House). An excellent layout and clear, colorful photographs and reproductions will further entice readers. This title should stand on most library shelves next to the author's Our Country's Presidents (National Geographic, 2005).
