Arthur Meets the President (Arthur Adventures Series)by Marc Brown
When Arthur wins the "How I Can Help Make America Great" contest, he and his classmates are excited about attending the special ceremony at the White House. But when Arthur learns he has to recite his winning essay on TV, he is terrified! And when his notes blow away, it is his irrepressible sister, D.W., who saves the day and underscores Arthur's message that "We can all help to make America great by helping others."
"Brown's attention to visual details provides much of the book's humor, and Arthur fans will delight in deciphering D.W.'s list of ideas about how to run the country... Brown's sensitivity to Arthur's frets is right on target."Publisher's Weekly"
The adventures of this comical aardvark have a timeless appeal to children. These [audio] packages are read by the author and move along at a good pace. Music and sound effects enhance the stories without being obtrusive."School Library Journal

Arthur wrote a speech. He won a trip to Washington D.C. to visit the President. His speech flew in the air. What will he do? My favorite part was when they toured the White House. I think my friends should read this book.
Arthur is really a great role-model for people. This book was his ticket to fame! Again, Mark Brown has achieved something wonderful!
