This book would be appropriate for elementary and middle school students. I would use this book to teach students about the history of the White House to give color and more depth in a lesson on the Executive branch. The book includes not only the history of the White House but: portraits of the Presidents and First Ladies, maps and diagrams, information on places in the White House, information on other historically significant buildings in Washington D. C., etc…. I particularly thought the facts about mundane happenings in the White House would be engaging for students. ( )
