Description:

Did you know that Thomas Jefferson's mother ran a plantation by herself, or that Abraham Lincoln's mother was a wrestler? James Madison's mom called him "Jemmy" and made his shirts while he went to college, and Woodrow Wilson created Mother's Day to celebrate all mothers--especially his. Join Beverly Gherman and Julie Downing in this celebration of the women behind the White House.  Gherman delightfully dishes fun facts about each mother, and Downing's lively illustrations are sure to enthrall and entertain.
