Description
With vivid, folk-art style paintings and a simple, lively text, Alexandra Wallner tells the story of Abigail Adam's life. Born on November 11, 1744, Abigail was curious about the world from a young age. Though as a girl she could not go to school, she learned in her father's library, and reading and writing became important to her. As a teenager she met the young lawyer John Adams. They began to correspond, and later they were married. While John pursued a political career, Abigail assisted him in it, raised their large family, and efficiently ran their farm. Along with her husband, she ardently supported the American Revolution. She also believed that a country fighting for independence should not permit slavery, and that women should have the same rights as men. Abigail Adams felt her most important role was as wife and mother, but she was never silent about her opinions.
