Book description
The book Laura First Lady, First Mother is an excellent depiction of Laura Bush’s life. It shows why she was such a great First Lady and a good person.The main points that the book talks about are her dedication to education, how she changed her husband for the better and how she handled 9/11.
      Ever since she was a little girl education hand been important to Laura Bush. She did well in school and eventually became a school teacher and librarian. Because of her passion for education she tried to share it with others. She taught in minority schools, and later in life, created a $215 million fund for new programs including “Ready to Learn” and “Take Time for Kids.”
      “Laura was reserved, calm, and patient, while George was gregarious and restless” (p.67). The two love birds were opposites but they were a perfect match. Laura Bush calmed him down and made him into a calmer focused person and he made her life more fun and exciting. 
       The day after the 9/11 attack Laura Bush joined the Red Cross’s President and CEO to visit D.C.’s local blood donation center and right after visited hospitalized victims of the Pentagon attack to comfort them. She also made sure that the kids of this nation were mentally okay by writing two letters, one to elementary and one to high school kids. She told them that they were safe and encouraged them to talk to a trusted adult if they needed to. She also encouraged them to look for the silver lining in the midst of this horrible disaster. 
       These three points were well put in this book. The author expanded on many key points of Laura Bush’s life and made it an interesting read. It also made it clear that Laura Bush was an excellent First Lady.
