Do our children have a sense of their American history? Do they really feel the struggle and honor and sacrifice of those who have given their lives to serving in the White House? This book is a collection of stories and illustrations, all dedicated to educating our children about the history of the inhabitants of the White House and the times in which they lived. It's one of those books that you can open to anywhere and read a short but compelling story. The selections range from a powerful piece on endangered species from Jean Craighead George to a timeline of Presidents that children can puzzle out. Who was number 21 anyway? Brilliant and entertaining. Great bedtime stories or anytime stories.
