Woodrow the White House Mouse

I can’t tell you how much I love Cheryl and Peter Barnes.  Woodrow, the White House Mouse is the third of their books that I have been able to review (Liberty Lee’s Tale of Independence and Woodrow for President being the first two.)

So far all of the books have followed the same winning formula

  • Mouse as the main character (kiddos love that)
  • Bright and vibrant illustrations (they just beautiful!)
  • Cute story
  • Teaches kids about government
  • Includes teacher/parent helps and resources at the end.
Woodrow, the White House Mouse picks up where Woodrow for President left off, with Woodrow’s inauguration.
It goes on to explain some of the duties of the President and some of the departments he oversees, a few of the traditional celebrations that are held at the White House and a tour of some of the rooms within the White House (oval office, etc.)
In the resources it explains why the founders created the office of the presidency as well as the legal requirements in order to be president, fun facts about past presidents, and facts about the White House itself.

While I loved this book (how could you not?) it wasn’t my favorite of the three (Woodrow for President holds that honor).  It seemed  to spend more time on the celebrations and White House rooms than the President’s role in our Government (which I would have like to have seen more of).  There were just SO many subjects covered that there could almost be a separate book for each!

That being said, it’s still a wonderful addition to my collection and, like the other two, is always on in the arms one of my children.
