“Abigail & John” is a heart-warming yet honest account of America’s most celebrated founding couple. With charming illustrations that bring Abigail and John Adams’ partnership to life, and beautifully-written text that engages equally well when read aloud as when read silently, this highly-informative history of early America will be treasured by children and parents alike. — Louise Mirrer, Ph.D., President & CEO, New-York Historical Society

The book offers readers the opportunity to view prominent scenes in American history through the remarkable lives of one of the country’s most beloved couples—the Adams’s. Exploring the historical significance of a partnership that spanned over five decades, the book details the love they shared for each other and the country. From carefree childhoods to years of war, to the births of their children, and the beginning of a new nation, Abigail & John looks into the unique roles the Adams’s played in the formation of America, and contributions and sacrifices they made for the young country.

From David Bruce Smith, author of American Hero: John Marshall, Chief Justice of the United States, and his mother, artist Clarice Smith, comes this compelling and insightful, historical biography about Abigail & John Adams, one of America’s most beloved couples; with original illustrations.
