The Kennedy White House: Family Life and Pictures, 1961-1963
Packed with never-before-seen photographs, The Kennedy White House reveals the world's most famous family, unstaged and as they were, both behind White House doors and in their private homes in Virginia, Palm Beach, Newport, and Hyannis Port. Carl Sferrazza Anthony's fascinating narrative brings new insight to the Kennedy story, in the first book to place the family within the context of 1960s culture and view historical events uniquely from the personal perspective of their family life. A candid and compelling tour, The Kennedy White House "takes you inside the world's most famous goldfish bowl for a glimpse at life in the White House as you've never seen it before" (Julie N. Eisenhower).

The Kennedy White House: family life and pictures, 1961-1963User Review - Book Verdict
Anthony, an established authority on First Ladies and White House history (First Ladies: The Saga of the President's Wives and Their Power), offers a behind-the-scenes look at the family life of the postwar era's most popular presidency, exploring the personal tastes, family activities, and complex relationships among the widely extended families of both the President and the First Lady. In a sensitive yet revealing narrative, he describes parenting styles, family vacations and celebrations, and the impact of personal and family tragedies, including the President's father's stroke and the death of new-born son Patrick. Perhaps the 6more than 300 photographs (many previously unpublished) showing the Kennedys in everyday activities with their children, other family members, and friends. These informal, intimate photos by the primary White House photographers show the First Family at their most relaxed and spontaneous. Highly recommended for all public libraries.

What's not to love? A history of the Kennedy, rarely seen White House photos, and just a lot of goodness in 300 pages. If you love Jack and Jackie, this book will be a great read. Read full review
