Book Review: When Jackie Saved Grand Central: The True Story Of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Fight For An American Icon by Natasha Wing; illustrated by Alexandra Boigrr

This has got to be one of my favorite books of 2017, so far! I love and will read anything (that’s credible) on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and this is one children’s book that I had no problem paying full price (a little over $10.00 including tax) for.

When Jackie Saved Grand Central tells the story of how the former First Lady fought against the rulings of the Supreme Court to save Grand Central Station: a very special and historical landmark for all people, though especially for folks who love and cherish all things New York.

The illustrations are also something that heavily attracted me to this children’s story. They are so delicate, yet so intricate and detailed. I could look at artwork by the Alexandra Boiger for hours on end!

I adored this wonderful book and I loved the author/illustrator collaboration between Natasha Wing and Alexandra Boiger. Wing’s writing compliments Boiger’s artwork so well.

I would 💯 percent recommend this to fans and admirers of Jacqueline Kennedy, in addition to people who share a deep devotion and love to all things history.
