Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The White House has been home to US presidents since 1800 when John Adams and his family moved in. Each occupant has left his mark on the house in some way. The author makes history come alive for readers with his concise and interesting accounts about the comings and goings in the first family's abode. The stories are often poignant, humorous, or tragic, in their turn. The contents, which are divided into "Beginnings," "Middles," and "Ends," will whet readers' appetites for more presidential history. The author's wife, Ingrid Smyer, penned the section entitled "First Ladies in Review." 1999 (orig. 1992), Cumberland House, Ages 12 up, $14.95. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati—Children's Literature
