I was excited about the concept, but the resulting story is just too strange for my taste.

It starts out very promising, and I greatly enjoyed the first few chapters, but quickly devolves into rather boring episodic nonsense as a new author enters with every chapter. Some of the later chapters do, however, make an admirable effort at bringing it all together. By the end, it's been a mostly bland reading experience, but the occasional funny moment helps, as does the fact that it is all tied up neatly at the end.

1. Summary - This book is composed of short stories and small tributes from 108 Authors and Illustrators. This book includes facts such as how the White House was built, the different types of presidents and their backgrounds as well as stories of events while they lived in the house. This book also contains some of the struggles the White House went through such as it catching fire in 1813 during Madison's term. And so much more fun little facts that are included that there are to many to describe in such short frame of time.

2. Personal Reaction - I thought this book was great! I loved all the fun facts I leaned and relearned! I thought that this was well put together considering all the authors in such a short book. Basically each author had 2-3 pages. It flowed through the eras and the presidents and happy times and struggles.

3. Extension Ideas -
1. I could use this book to tie into a history lesson and give fun facts about presidents when I go over them.
2. I could use this book to expand vocabulary and knowledge on White House terminology such as the Oval Office.
