BOOK REVIEW

CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 15, 2002

"Enhanced by directions for several simple models or demonstrations, some experiments, plus more of the same on the illustrator's Web site, this once-over conveys a clear sense of the body's complexity without losing sight of the big picture. (Picture book/nonfiction. 6-8)"

Not an authorized biography, but longtime journalist Kilian (What Was Watergate?, YA, 1990) has assembled enough quotes from friends, family, and Mrs. Bush herself to create a lively and credible portrait of this immensely popular First Lady. Read full book review >
