I have several books by this author and several others by this illustrator, all of which I love. They have teamed up to offer a beautiful story with remarkable illustrations. This book captures the personalities of these two important figures by sharing quotes from each of them in context, as well as illustrations which have come from photos taken during this remarkable visit. I didn't know this story, and it's an important one to mark the 70th anniversary of an event that shaped history. This is a great way to share some WWII history with young readers.

This was a great springboard for our 6 yr old son to go from his weekly history memory work (classical conversations cycle 2) about Pearl Harbor into more of what happened in WW2

I LOVED reading this. This really put a positive spin on Churchill if you need one! The illustrator should get 10 stars!! Beautiful!!! I read it to my boys who are 7 and 11 and they loved it.

Such a fascinating look into Winston Churchill’s extended stay at the White House during December of 1941; when he and Roosevelt began the strategizing of World War II and each nation’s role in the Allied Powers. I loved how the narration and fantastic illustrations work together to humanize these larger than life leaders during this tumultuous turning point in World History.
