Laura Bush Reads Halloween Tale to Palm Beach Kids
birdie writes "At library First Lady Gets the Word Out .Invited by the library, Mrs. Bush proceeded to read The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt. It's a story about a fly that is lured into a spider's web by flattery. She stopped after each page to show the children the illustrations.
'What's the lesson?' Bush asked at the end. 'Just because someone says flattering words, don't be tricked into doing something you shouldn't.'"
