    Well, I see why I was so fascinated with Caroline & John during the Kennedy presidency; they’re adorable. I was ten when President Kennedy was assassinated and clearly remember the scene where Caroline and Jackie kneeling at JFK’s coffin; it was repeated on tv a multitude of times; the photo is one of many in this book. I read through so many books about Kennedy and his administration in the few years following the 1963 assassination. This is a worthy one for children, although I’m not sure that Well, I see why I was so fascinated with Caroline & John during the Kennedy presidency; they’re adorable.

I read through so many books about Kennedy and his administration in the few years following the 1963 assassination. This is a worthy one for children, although I’m not sure that today’s children will have sufficient interest to care to read it. It was enjoyable for me though. It would be a great book for any young children who take residence in the White House but that’s a very small audience indeed. I do love how it is stressed that their mother did not want them spoiled and did not want to think of themselves as the “first children.” This is a good children’s history book for studying this particular family or the personal aspects of the U.S. Presidency in general. There is much general history in this book.

    I found this book in a discount book store. It grabbed my attention immediately because Caroline was my age (and still is) when she lived in the white house. As I enjoyed this book I remembered seeing Caroline on the news when she was living in the white house.

It's a great pictorial of the white house and of the first family's activities inside and outside; including a school that was set up for Caroline and her friends because Mrs. Kennedy did not want Caroline leaving the white house for school and being followed by the press at such a young age. Deelightful!

    With the 'New Camelot' approaching, I am pulling out all my historical books about the Kennedy years and perusing them once again. This fairly recent book looks back at the 1000 days through and via the children's point of view. Fairly well done with many photos restored or 'fixed' to a modern standard of publication. Better and worse picture albums of the famed Kennedy clan and their time 'on the hill' have been produced, but this one unusual in its focus on the kids.

This fairly recent book looks back at the 1000 days through and via the children's point of view. Fairly well done with many photos restored or 'fixed' to a modern standard of publication. Better and worse picture albums of the famed Kennedy clan and their time 'on the hill' have been produced, but this one unusual in its focus on the kids. Worth a few minutes for the Kennedy-ophiles and those looking, like me, for similarities that will occur in observers viewpoints of the newest residents of the WH here early in the 21st Century. The Obama children will be the youngest residents of the WH since the Kennedy kids. Date I read is a re-read date.
