Description
One of the most popular PowerKids Press series continues by focusing on a selection of America's first ladies. How did American presidents and their wives manage living in that presidential mansion known as the White House? Martha and George Washington lived in three official residences, but never the White House! Abigail Adams washed the family laundry and hung it to dry in the East Room. Dolley Madison had the capital's first egg rolling contest. There are many more stories and historical facts about our remarkable first ladies that will fascinate young readers. Each book contains recipes, similar to those served at state events and at family parties that can be prepared by children, teachers, and parents.

John Adams considered his wife Abigail to be his "partner for life." When the Adamses moved into the new, but unfinished White House, Abigail did much of the cooking and cleaning. Students can draw on Abigail's New England roots with her recipes for Indian pudding and blueberry flummery.
