We’ve been reading books about Presidents and First Ladies over the past few weeks. It was our theme for January in our little reading challenge. You can read more about our yearly family reading challenge here and here. And I would absolutely encourage you to institute a form of reading challenge in your own home.

Since we read President books in January, I thought I’d give you a list that is just in time for President’s Day!
