First KidsFirst Kids

by Kathryn Gibbs Davis ’76

Almost 200 kids have lived in the White House. Some loved it; others couldn’t wait to leave, according to this book, aimed at young readers. It then asks, “Would you like to live there?” This “Step into Reading” book is targeted at young readers beginning to read paragraphs. It begins with Tad and Willie Lincoln, and has recently been updated to include the two Obama children. Other featured “first kids” include those of Grant, Roosevelt, Coolidge, Kennedy, and Clinton.
