This book was a great book because it was entertaining and a really funny book.
This nine year old has seen a lot of things but she has now witnessed something new which is her father being the president of the United States. She is known as the first daughter which makes her feel special. Her father even gets the secret service men to follow her everywhere but she doesn't feel welcomed on her first days of school. Liberty understands her importance but at school, she wants to be a normal perso

I recently finished Liberty Porter by Julia DeVillers. This book starts with Liberty Porter moving into the Whitehouse. Her dad was just elected president and now she wants to make her move in the White House. The tone of this book was upbeat and happy, making me feel that way too. But of course every story has a problem and in this case it was Liberty's problem, was a problem named Miss Crum. Miss Crum, the President's chief of staff seemed to always make sure Liberty never did anything awesome ...more
The book that I read was liberty Porter First Daughter. It was a good book because the author was trying to tell you what it felt like to be new at something, that was a really good thing to do.The genre of this book is fiction because alot of it could really happen in real life. One of my weakness is that I should have went back in the book and reread if I did not understand it and that was not smart of me. This book takes place In Washington D.C and in the White House those are the two places ...more

3.5 "If your father is about to become president of the United States, there are a few things you might want to know. 1. Inauguration Day is the day a new president starts the job. 2. Riding in the backward seat of the limo to Inauguration Day seems really cool. But it actually can make you kind of sick to your stomach. 3. And then if you ask your dad to switch seats because you are feeling sick, don't forget that you put something on the seat next to you: a congratulations card that you decorat ...more

Last week I was at a get-together and met Julia DeVillers. She was super nice and had the best stories, but I had never read any of her books! So I got "Liberty Porter, First Daughter" and I’m happy to say it was as awesome to read as Julia was to meet.

It stars a girl whose father has just been elected President. The story is about the day they move into the White House. Liberty is a great character, full of quirkiness and fun. She knows a lot of strange facts about the White House, which I gr

This is about a nine year old that has her father as a President and it is very hard for her to fit in school because she is the first daughter. She loves all the fame, but wants to be normal sometimes. She goes through many struggles. I liked this book because it gives experience

I loved this book. That is partly because I love presidents and anything to do with the White House. This is a book about a girl who's father becomes president. She has to learn how to adjust to life in the White House. Maybe with some comedy too!

Liberty Porter's father has been inaugurated as President of the United States, and her family has just moved into the White House. On her first day there, Liberty explores her new home with her dog Franklin and her new friend James while her very own Secret Service Agent, SAM, follows in tow.

Reality and the actual logistics of Liberty's unique situation barely make an appearance in this novel. In their place are plenty of exclamation points and "Awesomes" as the precocious protagonist learns of

This book was pretty good. I liked how many adventures Liberty went on that you would never think of. I also liked how it taught me a little bit about the white house and its history. I couldn't give this book 5 stars though because I felt that it was a little bit below my reading level.

so this book is super cute. it's about Liberty Porter, who's dad has been elected president and is moving into the white house. she's 9 years old, so very hyper and kind of all over the place, which is to be expected since her dad is the new president. the whole book takes place over one day, inauguration day, which is a bit strange.
Abby Johnson
Why is third-grader Liberty Porter so excited? Well, because her dad was just elected President of the United States, making her First Daughter! You'd be excited, too. Liberty can't wait to see her new room in the White House, learn what her secret service code name will be, and get started on the most important project of her life - being a great First Daughter!

The writing was okay and there's not much of a story, but this will please young girls (and boys) who are fascinated with Sasha and Mal

Liberty Porter's dad just took a new job: President of the United States. This whole book describes the family's first day of living in the White House. Liberty goes on all sorts of adventures through the White House and meets a lot of people. She also causes some trouble, though she has good intentions. The next book in the series picks up after this first day.

Third and fourth grade girls would like this book, especially if they have an interest in the White House or past presidents. The book i

This book was terrible! I gave it an honest chance but it was boring. It didn't have any interesting plot and the main character was immature. Do not read this!

Great book

The book was fantastic, I couldn't put it down. It is a full of fun facts about the Whitehouse and presidents of the past.
Eh. I did this book for Mother-Daughter based on a girl in the club's recommendation. There wasn't much plot, and the author used way too many exclamation points, but there were fun factoids for kids about other presidential kids. While the pictures of Liberty in the book's art may lead you to believe this book is about Barack Obama's daughters, it's not. The president has no political affiliations at all and there is literally no political discussion. I'm hoping that our book club can see that ...more

Even though this is meant for littler kids, it's still a great book if u want entertainment and some facts about the White House along with it! This is a great book for people of all ages

First, I have to say that this is the first book I have read by this author. For the age I teach I believe they will find most of it immature. However, I can think of one or two students who are still immature enough to like it. Libby’s father has just become President and she sees this as an adventure that she must live up to. She is definitely not dull. At times I felt she was too over the top. Once you accept the fact that this was written more for the fourth grader than the sixth through eig ...more
I didn't like this book too much. It was funny, but boring as well.

Started this one out. The idea behind it was exciting the writing was just not gripping us in. It was okay...maybe we will go back to it at another time or leave this as a read alone for my daughter.

Cute and fun this is one of those books that makes you smile. Following the life of Liberty whose father is now the President and what being the first daughter means. She is starting a new school and life is already different for her and she is trying to be nice and accommodating to everyone in her class. She is extraordinarily diplomatic and tries her hardest to be a friend to all.

This is a great story for girls second grade to fourth, it really wouldn't appeal to boys or anyone fifth grade on
