What did you like or not like about the book?
At the end of the book were pictures and titles of various wild flowers. Some of them I had never heard of before. I learned a lot about wildflowers through this book.
What a wonderful childrens book this is! It is the PERFECT introduction about the wonderful life of Lady Bird Johnson. It was published in 2005,a few years before her death in 2007, and I know she would of had a smile on her face as she reviewed this outstanding book!
Why I liked this book - This is a great Nonfiction book! I like that it taught me about a person I didn't know about - "Lady Bird" Johnson (I think maybe a lot of kids don't know who she was). She was more than the wife of Lyndon B. Johnson (Heeeyy... I just realized! Both of their initials are "L.B.J." :) ). I liked learning about the National Wildflower Research Center that Lady Bird started and how they try to preserve wildflowers and birds. The story of her life is told in a nice way that was interesting to me. The story is pretty long and is a good picture book for older kids, but I think it would make a great read aloud for parents and kids. The illustrations are marvelous! When I was reading the book I thought the pictures really made me calm.
*NOTE I reviewed a library copy of this book
As I reflected on Mrs. Johnson's passing this week I recalled that this past spring was one of the longest seasons for flowers that I could ever remember, and I've lived here a long time. Maybe it was the rainy spring weather or maybe it was just a last glorious burst of color to honor her. I do know that she left us a precious gift.
