The White House

From the early 1800s, American presidents and their families have called the White House home. But as secret service agent Keneesha explains, the White House is more than just a place to live; it's also the president's office and one of the country's greatest symbols of leadership.

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter - Nancy Garhan Attebury

"Not many children get to live in the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but all youngsters can learn about this important home of the President of the United States when they pick up this informative book. Short, readable sections impart information that includes how George Washington chose land for the first home of the president, how an Irish designer came up with the best plans for the house, the first family to live there, what happened to the White House during wartime, and more. Simple concise sidebars add extra facts to the text. Basic vocabulary words in the book, such as democracy and leadership, are easy to understand in context. Like the other books in the "American Symbols" series, this one contains free-flowing computerized illustrations that may cause children to take a second and third look to see all they contain. This book offers a simple solution to letting many children "see" inside the White House without actually going there. Use it to enrich history lessons for early grades and students will retain the information when they reach middle grades." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter
