What began as a commercial publishing project for former First Daughter Caroline Kennedy became a very personal gift from the heart. Kennedy, having met with great success after publishing an anthology of her mother Jackie Onassis's poems, collected poems for children cherished by her own family. These poems were favorites that were read aloud to Kennedy and her brother from the White House by their famous parents. Divided into sections that reflect a child's world, Caroline Kennedy gives each a personal introduction and explains the relevance of each poem to her own life.
