Reviews - What do customers think about Ghosts of the White House?

makes learning about the White House fun   Feb 4, 2006
I purchased this book for my 9 yr old daughter because the author was coming to her school. I'm really glad I did. My daughter loved reading this book. It's got a really cute story, and lots of interesting facts about the white house and former presidents. This book is a great tool to help get kids interested in American History.
Fun look at history and the White House  Oct 30, 2000
This is a beautifully illustrated book filled with interesting and fun facts about each president. My nine-year old as well as my 12-year old found it entertaining. Even if your children haven't visited the White House, they will enjoy this book. I would definitely recommend it for a classroom library.
History comes alive with "Ghosts of the White House"  Apr 12, 2000
My eight-year old son received this book as a Christmaspresent. He is very interested in presidential trivia and has at leasta dozen other books about presidents.

In the three months he has hadthe book, he has read it so many times it is already starting to fall apart! Since it's really a collection of anecdotes and facts, it's easy to pick up when he has a minute.

The book provides many interesting bits of trivia about the presidents -- even the relatively obscure ones. While many books concentrate on Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and the Roosevelts, this book includes tidbits on all of the presidents. It's not just a list of dates of birth and death, first lady's name, party affiliation, etc.

The illustrations are beautiful.

If you know a child who is interested in presidential trivia or American history, this book is a must. And it may spark the interest of a child who isn't interested in history (yet).
