“Presidential Pets” is an excellent introduction to the history of the American presidents for children. The hook is obviously the pet facts, but each president also has brief and easy-to-digest facts about their presidency on their pages. The illustrations are wonderful, as well. Highly recommended to animal and history lovers of all ages. This review is based upon a complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Presidential Pets: The Weird, Wacky, Little, Big, Scary, Strange Animals That Have Lived in the White House by Julia Moberg is such a delightful, informational book you just have to pick up! On each page there are many incredible fact tidbits that are about that certain president, weird oddities pertaining to him, and accomplishments and other facts you may not know. The book goes through all the presidents. I am a big history buff but I learned so much fun trivia from this book. It was a fun, and informative with lots of creative and imaginative drawings that make you smile. Just a real joy. I needed this! Knowledge, a snicker, and cartoons... and good fun read!!! Loved it, need more of these books. The way it is written, with funny poems mixed with silly facts and true facts, it is good for everyone. Pet lovers would love this book. The perfect gift for that person who has everything. I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review and it in no way effected my rating or review and boy am I glad I got it! Thanks NetGalley!!!
