" This was a fascinating look at the White House and the folks that have lived there. A really interesting read and lots of photos. " said.

" This book deserves five stars for its excellent text on the history of The White House and all those who have lived there. However, overall it gets a four due to the fact that many of the photos could have been color, especially when featuring the color rooms. I learned many interesting facts about former First Ladies, their children and the house itself. Wonderful book! " said.

" I loved this book! Lots of pictures, fun activities at the end of each chapter, and so many things I never really knew about the White House and the Presidents who lived there!I will definitely be buying this one when it comes out!I did not like reading this in ebook format. Some pages would freeze up and not fully load. " said.

" Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC. I love this book. I'm impressed with the photos, the stories and just the history that goes along with White House. I truly feel like I should have been born in an earlier decade...before security was so rigid because I doubt in my lifetime will I get to experience the White House first hand. I will purchase this for my school library and am so super excited to have the actual book in my hand. " said.

"I've got several of these books and this one does not disappoint.

It starts with a timeline of some of the most important events in the history of the White House like when running water was added and when current East Wing office building was added.

Chapter one highlights the building of the White House starting with George Washington's help in designing it. It takes us through its destruction during the War of 1812, the building of the Oval Office and the present day layout with pictures.

Chapter two focuses on the children that grew up in the White House. There are some cute stories about the mischief that the children got into.

Chapter three focuses on the "toughest job in the world", that of President.

Chapter four talks about working in the White House including the First Ladies and the busy butlers.

Entertaining at the White House, chapter five, has many entertaining stories.

Traditional holiday celebrations are discussed in chapter six.

You will learn more about the home life of the President and his family in chapter seven.

As with all of the books in the series, it includes many activities (21 to be exact) that you can use with students. There is also a list of resources in the back of the book with include websites, museums and books.

This is a definite "must have" book for anyone that teaches about the Presidents.
