Curious about the White House by Kate Waters - ADVISABLE

Waters, Kate  Curious about the White House  PICTURE BOOK Grosset and Dunlap, 2016 (Penguin). $3.99  Content: G.  

This book describes how the White House came to be, who first lived there and its location.  It describes how the White House is an office for the President, a home, a museum and stage for our nation.  It also tells interesting facts about the building and the previous presidents who have stayed in it.  

The Smithsonian writes great little non-fiction books-this is no exception.  There are lots of pictures and the when I was done I felt like I had been on a tour through the White House.  The text is 3-5 sentences per page and it is easy to read.  

EL (K-3) – ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
