Grade 3 Up-Published in cooperation with the White House Historical Association, this is a fascinating and beautifully produced gem for armchair travelers or for someone anticipating a trip to Washington, DC. More than 200 photographs and reproductions provide historical perspectives and behind-the-scenes looks at the officials and staff who make the place run. A tour of the famous rooms showcases the furnishings and history. The chapter called 'Living at the White House' is particularly captivating. Readers learn that Tad Lincoln made extra money selling lemonade to visitors, Amy Carter built a tree house on the South Lawn, and that pet handlers take care of presidential animals. The epilogue chronicles each president who occupied the White House, including George Washington, who never lived there but who chose the site and selected the architect. This accessible volume is filled with many interesting facts, and is a handsomely designed tribute to a symbol of freedom and democracy.Jennifer Ralston, Harford County Public Library, Belcamp, MDCopyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
