Lady Bird Johnson, That's Who! The Story of a Cleaner and Greener America

Who fought to stop pollution? Who helped make America cleaner and greener? Lady Bird Johnson, that's who!

Claudia Alta Taylor was a lonely girl, shy as a butterfly growing up in Texas. She never dreamed she'd blossom into a visionary leader whose love for wildflowers, beautiful landscapes, and building community compelled her to lead the effort to combat pollution in the United States. A lifelong environmentalist, Lady Bird Johnson embraced her platform as First Lady to promote policy that beautified America’s roadways, waterways and parks, inspiring people to take pride in the places they live.

Lady Bird Johnson, That's Who! is Tracy Nelson Maurer's lively picture book biography of Lady Bird Johnson, with a focus on her environmentalist passion and legacy as First Lady. With elements of women’s history, civics, and conservationism, this is a timely and informative picture book biography.
