Christmas at the White House Review Mar 2, 2008
Christmas at the White House was not what I expected for the money paid. I thought the book would be filled with colorful illustrations that could direct our floral guild in our church to be inspired in doing Christmas decorations. Instead, it was a history of Christmas in the White House with illustrations in black and white. I returned the book for a refund.
