Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
A mouse named Woodrow G. Washingtail is elected as the president mouse and gets to live in the White House along with the president. He attends the Inaugural Ball with his mouse family. He has a desk on the shelf in the Oval Office, and keeps busy making new laws. Intricate illustrations show the proceedings, and one page depicts Woodrow as the chief executive with pictures and labels of all the departments of government. It explains that he is "Commander in Chief," and so is in charge of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. He is also the "Head of State," handling foreign affairs. He gets to play every Easter when they have an egg-rolling game on the White House lawn. More elaborate illustrations with interesting details portray the East Room, the Red Room, and the Green Room. The Blue Room is decorated for Christmas. The story is told in verse in short paragraphs. Pages at the end of the book provide additional information for parents and teachers about the presidency according to the Constitution, facts about the presidents, and history of the White House. Children can look for the Presidential Seal that is hidden in each picture. This book, in the "Little Patriot Press" series, is a good educational resource that could be used by adults to read aloud and discuss the concepts with children. Children will enjoy the fun drawings of the mice as they work and play around the White House. The book should be a useful tool in helping children to understand some of the basics of the governmental processes. Reviewer: Vicki Foote

    Woodrow The White House Mouse

    This is the second Woodrow book we have enjoyed together. The boys ages 5 and 7 were excited again to listen to the book. They then went to each page and had fun looking for the Presidential Seal.
    As the boys are young, I explained some of the things in the book...they decided they would like to go to the Easter Egg Roll! I read to them how a President named Hayes and his wife Lucy were the first to open their South Lawn for the event.
    Because the book has two Presidents...one human and one mouse. I went on to explain that right now two humans were running for the highest office in our land.
    The boys loved hearing about the different rooms in the house, and were hysterical when one of the twins fell into the soup bowl.
    This is such a delightful and educating book, and I am sure they will be wanting to here it again!

    I received this book through TLC Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
