Michelle Obama gets a rare thumbs up from her adolescent daughters for publishing her first gardening book.

The first lady said her daughters Sasha, 11 and Malia, 13, were pulled in by the beautiful pictures and eventually read "American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America."

Mrs. Obama spoke to a bookstore crowd at an anything-but-typical book signing, which required hundreds of attendees to stand in line for hours last week to get a wrist band, then go through security clearance and again line up for a few hours before Tuesday's signing at a downtown Barnes & Noble bookstore.

The book, released last month, traces the story of the vegetable garden on the South Lawn and community gardens around the country.
