From Martha Washington to Melania Trump, 46 of the nation's First Ladies grace the pages of this entertaining and informative coloring book. Presidents' wives, daughters, and other relations who served as official White House hostesses appear here in finely detailed, ready-to-color line drawings. Many of the First Ladies are depicted in their inaugural gowns — others model less formal attire. Illustrations include Dolley Madison, shown in a gown of Chinese silk brocade; Mary Todd Lincoln, dressed in a rich velvet; Grace Coolidge in a sleeveless frock; Jacqueline Kennedy in a two-piece print outfit; Nancy Reagan in a woolen ensemble; and many others. Fact-filled captions complete this stylish collection, offering colorists and history buffs alike insights into the lives of the women who shared in one of the most demanding and visible roles in American public life.
