About the Author

For decades, Laura Bush has championed key issues in the fields of education, health care, human rights, and the preservation of our nation’s heritage. A hiking and outdoors enthusiast, Mrs. Bush encourages Americans to spend time in and care for our national parks.

The author of the bestselling memoir Spoken from the Heart, Mrs. Bush also founded both the Texas Book Festival and the National Book Festival in Washington, DC. Today, as the chair of the Women’s Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute, Mrs. Bush continues her work on global health-care innovations, empowering women in emerging democracies, education reform, and supporting the men and women who have served in America’s military. 

Mrs. Bush holds a degree in education and a master’s degree in library science. She taught in public schools in Dallas, Houston, and Austin and worked as a public school librarian.

Denise Brunkus has illustrated more than sixty books for children, most notably the bestselling Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park, Read All About It! by Laura Bush and Jenna Bush, and Charlie Hits It Big by Deborah Blumenthal. Denise is basically a neat person, so adding smudges and smears to the art for Sloppy Joe was an unexpected thrill. She lives in Massachusetts.

Denise Brunkus es una conocida ilustradora de libros para niños con más de sesenta libros publicados, entre los que se destacan la exitosa serie Junie B. Jones, Charlie Hits It Big, Chocolatina y Groundhog Gets a Say. Vive en Massachusetts con su esposo y su gran colección de libros.

Jenna Bush Hager is a contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today show and an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, which she wrote after traveling to Latin America in 2006 as an intern with UNICEF. Ana’s Story is based on the life of a seventeen-year-old single mother with HIV who struggles to shield her child from the life she had of abuse and neglect.

Hager remains involved with UNICEF and is currently the chair of its Next Generation initiative, which is dedicated to reducing childhood deaths around the world. Hager holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Texas at Austin. She is also coauthor with Laura Bush of the children’s books Our Great Big Backyard and Read All About It!

Hager is the daughter of former US President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush. In 2008, she married Henry Hager, and they have two daughters, Margaret Laura (Mila) and Poppy Louise.

This is a good book. It's good to see a book that concentrates on children reading. This makes a great gift for a child.

The book itself was cute. Not great, but far from terrible. What really sells it is the illustrations, by the incomparable Denise Brunkus. This is the first time I've seen her work in color [apart from the front covers of the Junie B. Jones books], and it's simply outstanding. She really takes the just-average text and makes it come alive. I know the book's celebrity authors are the ones doing all the publicity tours for this title, but it's the illustrator who deserves most of the praise here.

The book is lovely. The slam to the author's husband is not.

'read all about it' is a very remarkable childrens book writtion by first lady laura bush and jena bush and it is about a young student who likes everything in his school except books and what I love about this bestseller is the joy in this young boys eyes whean his teacher shows him all the wonderful things he can apprieatte from the joy of reading. this is very hard to put down and the little boy tyrone is based on one of the students of laura bush whean she was a teacher. great gift idea for a friend or family member as well as an honorable tribute to teachers.
