Just Being Jackie
Jackie Kennedy was an American icon of style and grace—but there was steel under that style. Her poise under fire, intelligence, and tireless work as First Lady earned her the respect of leaders worldwide and made her beloved by generations.
Jackie’s legacy also extended beyond her time in public life. She was a talented journalist, a preservationist who secured the legacy of national landmarks, and an editor of award-winning books.
The creators of Just Being Audrey have brought us another insightful, dazzling book about the real woman behind the famous name, who was so much more than first appearances.
In 'Just Being Jackie,' Cardillo and Denos, through interesting words and thoroughly colorful and engaging illustrations, insert readers into Jackie Kennedy's life, making them interested in learning more about her life and the lives of those she touched. Despite it being a picture book, it would likely appeal to older kids and adults as well.
