A Fun Read

Image:Google
I was watching the World
News the other night and
heard a spot on this book.
After listening, I Googled
it to find out more.
It is written by Colleen
Christian Burke--she
received a personal
invitation from First Lady
Laura Bush to help decorate
the White House of Christmas
of 2008.
She writes of the traditions that
each First Lady decided on during
their time in the White House.
It begins with the Kennedy's and
continues through the Obama's
I have read the first chapter and
now I am moving on to the
Johnson's term.
This would be a great book for
someone who has an interest in
the White House, the First Ladies,
history and traditions. Each chapter
ends with a special treat for the reader.
I purchased this for myself for
Christmas and I am really enjoying it!
