First Kids by Gibbs Davis

Davis, Gibbs First Kids: Step into Reading 48 p. Random House 2009. $3.99. Language - G; Sexual Content - G; Violence - G. This is a great book for students who are just learning how to read paragraphs. It is step 4 in the Step into Reading program. You learn about what it would be like to grow up in the White House. Tad and Willie Lincoln, Jesse Root Grant, Roosevelt's children, the Coolidge boys and many more are described with humor and entertaining stories. The boys used to play pranks on the staff, let animals roam the White house, and form their own clubs. This is the updated version so it also includes Malia and Sasha Obama. I found it entertaining to read, and informative at the same time. EL - ESSENTIAL. Anna Mattheus. Elementary Teacher.
