The Inauguration and Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out

By January 18, 2013

 Our White House cover artIf the inauguration has your kids talking about U.S. presidency and the White House, I recommend Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out, a project of the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance (NCBLA). The book took 8 years to develop and was created by 108 well-known authors and illustrators. This fascinating anthology of American history centers on the White House and its inhabitants. Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out is 244-pages long and includes a wide variety of historical fiction and nonfiction. I recommend it for ages 9 to 14 and as a family read aloud, as well as for classroom use. See Children's Books that Celebrate America for more books about U.S. History, symbols, tall tales, documents and more.
