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.
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.
