Gigli At The White House
By Giovanna McBride
Many children have at least one special opportunity to visit their parents at work, and this was true for Gigi McBride, whose mother had a unique jobshare worked at the White House. During the George W. During the Bush administration, Gigi had many adventures visiting her mother Anita McBride, Chief of Staff to First Lady Laura Bush.
Now that she is a college student with a love of children's literature, she decided to share her special memories of her visits to the White House from 2005 to 2009, when she was 4 to 8 years old. She hopes that the book will encourage children to learn more about the White House and life as they lived there. With illustrations by artist John Hutton, this book features Gigi's favorite stories of the fun she had exploring the White House at the Easter Egg Roll, Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas, and the friends that she made, including First Lady Laura Bush, the Secret Service, the White House Pastry Chefs, and the White House florist.
