About the Author
Praise For Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out…
—School Library Journal (starred review)
Among the most provocative entries are works by artists who 'look in' on the White House with a demonstrably personal vision: David Small shares color sketches of 'backstairs at the White House,' a study in contrasts; Bob Kolar arranges the presidents as if on a board game, with clever annotations (who knew President Arthur held a yard sale while in office?)...the volume makes the invaluable point that history does not have to be remote or abstract, but a personal and ongoing engagement.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Unique bits and pieces (including Jefferson’s fascination with fossils and William Henry Harrison’s purchase of a national cow) create a browser’s dream as readers explore the nooks and crannies of American history
—The Horn Book (starred review)
