Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-2

These brief texts begin and end with a group of words, listed at the beginning to highlight their importance and at the end as a review. Only a few rooms are described in See Inside the White House . Children may wonder about the rest of the building or not realize that there are other parts. Who Works at the White House? covers Secret Service agents, photographers, chefs, and gardeners, but no mention is made of positions such as the president's secretary, advisors, or communications staff. President , which features Obama on the cover, presents a complex job in understandable terms. The main duties are described as helping to make laws, giving speeches, meeting with leaders, and heading the military. Easy to read and with large, inviting color photographs, the books contain enough information to interest children in the topics, but they may be frustrated by how much is left out.-Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
