Summary, etc.:
"The best advice First Lady Barbara Bush offered her family, staff, and close friends"-- Provided by publisher.
As a mother, Barbara Bush made sure we all knew that your children must come first, and one of the most important things you can do is to read to them. As a friend and mentor, she showed that you had to be true to yourself. Even at the end of her life, she taught us how to die with grace. Her advice ranged from what to wear, what to say or not say, and how to live your life. She especially loved visiting with students of all ages, from kindergartners to college graduates. This is a collection of her trademark wit and thoughtfulness. -- adapted from front flap and Amazon info
