Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Laura Bush has loved education and reading since she was a young child, and today she brings her experienced viewpoints, her love of children, and her interest in education to a much broader audience as the wife of the forty-third president of the United States, George W. Bush. In her speeches and public appearances, she expresses what many Americans believe: that every human being should be treated whith dignity, and that no child should be left behind in shcool, or in life.
This biography of one of our most fascinating public figures touches on all aspects of Mrs. Bush's life, from her years as a teacher and librarian, to her first meeting with her husband, to the birth of their twins, to her important work as an advocate for women and children.
