About the book:
Ellis the Elephant is headed back to the White House! In Remember the Ladies, the seventh in Callista Gingrich's New York Times bestselling series, Ellis meets some of America's greatest first ladies and discovers their many contributions to American history.
In preceding books, including Sweet Land of Liberty, Land of the Pilgrims' Pride, Yankee Doodle Dandy, From Sea to Shining Sea, Christmas in America, and Hail to the Chief, Ellis learns about the pivotal moments that have shaped our nation. Now, in Remember the Ladies, this adorable pachyderm explores the fascinating lives of our first ladies.
I am familiar with Ellis the Elephant after reviewing two previous books in the series. I have also reviewed Christmas in America and Hail to the Chief in this series.
In this book Ellis learns about some of the first ladies. I liked the rhyming text and how it spotlights how each first lady has her own significant contributions to our country.
This book is geared for children aged 4-9. It would be appropriate for an elementary classroom/library or for your personal library. At the close of the book is 7 pages with a listing of all the first ladies with a paragraph about each one.
This book makes it fun to learn some of our country's history. Plus the elephant is pretty cute too!
