Read a Review of Who Was Abigail Adams? by Kelley True, written by Risa Eschen, Age 11:
Abigail was born on November 11,1744, and died on October 28, 1828. She was the wife of our 2nd president, John Adams. She was also the mother of our 6th president, John Quincy Adams. Abigail was very helpful to her husband in many ways, and one of those was hosting.
I want to paraphrase a part of the introduction to show you a little bit of what the book is like: Abigail woke up with a start, she could hear loud booms from the not to distant canons. Her first thought was for her children. Her husband was away and she had 4 children to take care of. Abigail and 7-year-old John quincy Adams climbed the hill behind her house, she could see black smoke rising from the city. The British were setting the city ablaze!
Who was Abigail Adams was an Interesting book, it showed the life of Abigail from a baby, to when she died, and all the events that happened in her life time, such as the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre, the Stamp Act, the Making and Signing of the Declaration of Independence, etc.
