    " Yes she was demanding and insecure but George rose above it, and managed her. An important lesson. "

    " It turns out that the First Mom is both nutty and boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharyn L. | 9/3/2012

    " Not up the usual Jean Fritz standards. I read this book aloud to my second graders. I probably won't do that again, though I will have the book available for students to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christian | 6/25/2012

    " We didn't care for this book at all. It made her out to be quite spoiled and demanding, when she was a woman of good character. Fritz seems to have an anti-Christian tone in some of her books. (This review was written by Mom.) "
