Product Details

Praise

Fascinating information, challenging ideas, and appealing artwork.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Among the most provocative entries are works by artists who ‘look in’ on the White House with a demonstrably personal vision: David Small shares color sketches of ‘backstairs at the White House,’ a study in contrasts; Bob Kolar arranges the presidents as if on a board game, with clever annotations (who knew President Arthur held a yard sale while in office?)…the volume makes the invaluable point that history does not have to be remote or abstract, but a personal and ongoing engagement.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Unique bits and pieces (including Jefferson’s fascination with fossils and William Henry Harrison’s purchase of a national cow) create a browser’s dream as readers explore the nooks and crannies of American history
—The Horn Book (starred review)
