Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out

author: National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance

Conceived and co-created by the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance, this outstanding collection of essays, personal accounts, historical fiction, and poetry melds with an equally stunning array of original art to offer a look at America’s history through the prism of the White House. Starting with a 1792 call for designers and continuing through the present day, these highly engaging writings and illustrations, expressing varied viewpoints and interwoven with key historical events, are a vital resource for family and classroom sharing -- and a stirring reminder that the story of the White House is the story of every American.

"Fantastic. . . . If you don’t find one of your favorite writers in this book, we’ll be surprised." -- Washington Post
Complete your presidential timeline (pg 224-225) with Barack Obama, our 44th president!
