5 Fun Facts About Michelle Obama, Plus Giveaway

Today we're excited to be part of the First Ladies blog tour. 

Below you'll find more about our featured first lady, Michelle Obama

What's the Big Deal About First Ladies, plus a giveaway!

 
 
 
 
Get to Know Michelle Obama!
 
 
 
 
 

1.) While growing up, Michelle was only allowed one hour of television a night, she memorized each episode of “The Brady Bunch."

 

2.) While Michelle was a fantastic athlete, she shied away from competitive sports because, her big brother says, she hated to lose.

 

3.) Before Michelle agreed to date Barack, she asked her brother to play him on the basketball court (her father and brother said you could tell a lot about someone’s character on the court).

 

4.) Her nickname in her family is "Miche" (pronounced “Meesh").

 

5.) Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama are the only First Ladies to receive master's degrees.

 
 
 
Meet What's the Big Deal About First Ladies!
 
 
 
 
Following in the footsteps of So You Want to Be President?, this first book in a new series features fun, kid-friendly facts about America's First Ladies and shows young readers just why they're such a big deal.
Did you know that Mary Todd Lincoln played a huge role in fighting to end slavery? Or that Edith Wilson decoded secret messages from our allies during World War I? Or that Michelle Obama has led a nationwide initiative to promote healthy lifestyles for children?

Or how about fun facts: Did you know that Grace Coolidge had a pet raccoon? Or that Dolley Madison loved oyster ice cream? (And would later have a brand of ice cream named after her!)

In addition to being hostesses, ambassadors, activists, educators, historians and role-models, each first lady put her own stamp on the White House and her husband's presidency. Filled with fun, kid-friendly facts that bring each First Lady to life on the page, this picture book written by a member of a former first lady's staff, shows us just how much our nation's first ladies have accomplished from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.
