Conceived and co-created by the National Children’s Book and Literary Alliance, this outstanding collection of essays, personal accounts, historical fiction, and poetry melds with an equally stunning array of original art to offer a look at America’s history through the prism of the White House. Starting with a 1792 call for designers and continuing through the present day, these highly engaging writings and illustrations, expressing varied viewpoints and interwoven with key historical events, are a vital resource for family and classroom sharing — and a stirring reminder that the story of the White House is the story of every American.

Our White House: Looking in, Looking Out is an astounding collection featuring more than 100 award-winning children's book authors and illustrators. It is much more than a history about the home and office of U.S. presidents and their families. Commissioned by the National Children's Book and Literary Alliance, this stunning picture book transcends the bounds of educational textbook, or any particular genre, for that matter. It includes essays by historians and well-known nonfiction writers (like David McCullough), fictional stories, poetry (including a memorable poem about Lincoln and a butterfly by Kate DiCamillo), imagined letters to the president, texts of actual speeches, memoir (including an essay by Linda Johnson Robb about the eerie history of a White House room where she once stayed), transcripts of TV interviews, and clever games such as a "Best in Show" presidential pet contest and a "Who's in the House?" presidential board game. Among the book's most captivating features are the "illustration essays" which feature stories or ideas rendered completely through pictures. Notable examples include David Small's sketch journal "Backstairs at the White House,"depicting all the people who work in the house and keep it running, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech illustrated by Calef Brown, Peter Sis, Ed Young, and Stephen Alcorn.

Our White House will likely be a favorite of children--and adults-who love presidential trivia, historical facts, and old stories. Children who weren't White House buffs already will surely be drawn into this colorful, fun history of an iconic building that simultaneously tells the story of the United States. (Ages 9 to 12) --Heidi Broadhead

White House
The Little White House is one of structures in Lazienki Park (The Baths Park) in Warsaw, Poland. The Little White House (Bialy Domek) is a garden villa built in 1774-76 by Domenico Merlini. It housed King Stanislaw August Poniatowski's mistress and, for a time, Louis XVIII, who lived here in 1801-05 during his exile from France. Built in the form of a square, it has identical facades, adorned with rustication, an attic and a small pavilion at the top. The interiors were decorated by the prominent Polish painters Jan Scislo and Jan Bogumil Plersch. Though the Little White House was devastated by the Germans during World War II, many of its interior furnishings survived. The most interesting include grotesque paintings in the dining room, 18th-century Chinese wallpaper in the parlor, the king's bed in the bedchamber, and a cabinet in the form of an arbor with trompe-l'?il paintings by Plersch. The Baths Park, or Royal Baths (Polish: Park Lazienkowski, or Lazienki Krolewskie) is the largest park in Warsaw, Poland, occupying 76 hectares of the city center. The park-and-palace complex lies in Warsaw's Downtown (Srodmiescie), on Ujazdow Avenue (Aleje Ujazdowskie) on the "Royal Route" linking the Royal Castle with Wilanow palace to the south. Lazienki Park was designed in the 17th century by Tylman van Gameren, in the baroque style, for Stanislaw Herakliusz Lubomirski. It took the name Lazienki ("Baths") from a bathing pavilion that was located there. In 1764 the gardens were acquired by Stanislaw August Poniatowski, after his election that year as King of Poland. The development of the classical-style gardens became a major project for King Stanislaw August. The park-and-palace complex was designed by Domenico Merlini, Johann Christian Kammsetzer and landscape gardener Jan Chrystian Schuch. Its principal buildings stand beside or near the Lazienki Lake and Lazienki River.

Old white house on Bay Street in Charleston. Notice the second story balconies metal balconies are round and not like the third floor. Over 100 years ago, women wore dresses with hoops. The square balconies would lift the back of the dresses. They installed the round one to accomodate the ladies with hoop dresses.

White House Secrets
WHITE HOUSE SECRETS is a suspense/thriller with a little mystery and intrigue. This book is intended for any age as the primary protagonist starts out at 12 and grows into a mature young college graduate as he unknowingly becomes a pawn in a race to steal back a powerful computer that could destroy peaceful nations and turn Einstein's theories into reality. The White House, the President, and the Situation Room play a key part in this exciting, fast-moving, novel that will keep you on the edge of your seats to the last page.

...Aaron Vanderhoff watches in horror as a garbage truck pulls up to his family’s home and fires a rocket into the house, blowing it to smithereens. Aaron screams as he watches his Mom and Dad perish in the fire. He regains his senses just in time to get out of sight as the killers turn to look for witnesses. Confident that they killed the whole family, the killers drive off.

Aaron, a bright 12 year old, makes a quick decision that he must leave the scene immediately and find the only person he has left in the world, his grandfather. Afraid for his life, Aaron scrambles into the bushes and then he is gone.

Unbeknownst to Aaron, terrorists came to steal a top-secret computer, built by his father and a team of scientists at the National Security Agency, from a secret hiding place in the family home on that fateful night. Too late do the terrorists realize that the computer was a clever decoy, not the weapon of mass destruction that they learned about, from a double-agent. They had been duped. But who is duping whom?

The story moves 6 years ahead...

Aaron, now 18, receives a much-wanted computer he needs for college. His grandfather tells him it’s a belated gift from his dead father and tells him not to tell anyone about their family secret.

Bewildered, Aaron asked, "What family secret? It's just a computer. You are always being so secretive above dad and his life."

His grandfather just smiles and says, "You'll discover the secret when you're ready."

A year later, the terrorists learn that Dr. Vanderhoff's soon, Aaron, is alive. The chase is on as the terrorists try to learn if Aaron knows the whereabouts of the computer they had been seeking for the past six years.
