A great book for children that play on phone/tablet all day. I think this book is appropriate for grades kindergarten-2nd grade.

I really liked the first half of this book. It was so interesting and flowed really well. The last third of the book was harder to push through. It was a lot of dates and names and details about nothing really inciteful.

Written in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of our national parks, this book recounts the story of a family's summer vacation to five parks. Jane, the oldest child who spends a lot of time online, thinks the outdoors is boring, but learns eventually that what she discovers is actually quite exciting.

Laura Bush grew up an only child in Texas. As an only child, she loved reading and later became a teacher and a librarian. Two things that affected her growing up years were: At the age of 17, she was driving with a friend and hit and killed one of her close friends, a boy driving from another direction. The other thing was the shooting President John F. Kennedy in Texas. Laura met George Bush and they were engaged after six weeks. George was very interested in politics and Laura was not, but she helped him campaign as he ran for congress, then governor of Texas and finally President of the United States. The Bush family was left in limbo after the 2000, presidential election when the state of Florida’s election process was in question, and the Supreme Court finally had to rule that the manual Florida recount had violated the Constitution. The event of September 11, 2001 happened during her husband’s presidency. President Bush was flown all of the country during September 11, to make sure he was safe. At the end of the day, Sept 11, the secret service wanted the president to stay away from Washington, D.C., but he insisted that they return to White House to make sure his family was safe. Then came the anthrax mail scare and mail all over the country was held up and examined. Mrs. Bush candidly speaks about her marriage, her relationship to the Bushes and the birth of her twin daughters. She inserts numerous tidbits of history in speaking of their days in the White House. She talks frankly about the White House events, her numerous trips and meeting various people. This is an eye-opening book about Laura’s life and living in the White House.… (more)
