Format: Paperback
Peter and Cheryl Barnes have taken the stuffiness out of the office of the presidency and written a picture book full of solid information that's perfect for youngsters 4-8 years old. Told in rhyme, Woodrow G. Washingtail's administration parallels that of his human counterpart. From his inauguration to work in the oval office, from sending bills to congress and meeting with foreign heads of states, to hosting the Easter egg roll and artistic events in the East Room, Woodrow explains how the president does his job. Cheryl Barnes' charming, detailed illustrations show actual White House rooms, furnishings and decor and Woodrow's first lady Bess is even wearing Mamie Eisenhower's gown, at the inauguration ball. At the end of the book, there are historical notes for teachers and parents, about the presidency and White House, to help expand discussions and lessons. Woodrow the White House Mouse is a delightful book, chock full of fun facts, history, and amusing descriptions that kids will find interesting and enjoy again and again.

My daughter (toddler) got this book for Christmas, and asks for us to read it again and again. She also enjoys looking at the beautiful illustrations all by herself.
The book explains what every kindergarten student should know about the Presidency by using animals to grab the attention of young readers. It is not over simplified, leaving plenty of room for questions and looking up supplimental information.
There are not a lot of resources for parents who have very young children interested in government. The books in this series are very age-appropriate and informative. Even if your child is not specifically interested in government, it is a good story with some beneficial information.

My boys(4 and 2)LOVE this book and others by Peter and Cheryl Barnes! It is fun for me to read to them, and the illustrations are fantastic. Just enough history in this story about a mouse president in the white house! A section at the end for parents and teachers includes historical information that you can share with your children.

Woodrow, the White House Mouse and the whole series are fantastic. Illustrator, Cheryl Shaw Barnes does an amazing job of bringing the White House to life with her beautiful watercolor and ink drawings. The rhyming text in each of the books is hilarious and instructive. These books will stay in our family library forever - treasures all!

Format: Hardcover
Woodrow Mouse is back! In late August, I reviewed Woodrow for President. Now I'm delighted to review the follow-up book: Woodrow the White House Mouse. Just like its predecessor, information that might otherwise be dull or difficult has been made fun through cute rhymes. Moreover, the lavish illustrations are once again colorful, detailed, and purposeful. Having said this, you might wonder: What else do you need to know? Well, Woodrow the White House Mouse isn't just a clone. And so there are features I'd like to tell you about.

For one thing there is the subject matter. "Woodrow G. Washingtail won the last vote." This means there is a host of information to introduce about the White House. The President and his family must attend the Inaugural Ball. As a point of interest, the dress of one of Woodrow's children is modeled on the exact gown worn by the wife of President Eisenhower for his first inaugural celebration. Then there is the Oval Office, East Room, Red Room, Green Room, and Blue Room. I guess the president likes to have rooms of different colors! The White House has apparently one hundred rooms, the most famous of which are described in Woodrow the White House Mouse. Because of my being Canadian, all this information is new to me and so this book has given me a better understanding of the American Presidency. (Or, at least his house. :-) ) The best picture books are ones that appeal to all ages.

For another thing there are the mini-stories. Granted, the cute rhymes help lighten up otherwise dull information. Yet it's one thing to learn about the Inaugural Ball, it's another thing to read the amusing and creative anecdote about how one of Woodrow's sons fell into a senator's soup while attending it.

Format: Hardcover
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.
