See Inside the White House

I'm really pleased when I can find good nonfiction for preschool-1st graders. See Inside the White House is one such book.  Readers are taken on a tour of six rooms in the White House (China Room, Gold Room, Red Room, Blue Room, Oval Office, and Yellow Oval Room).  The photographs are fabulous (loved the overhead view of an Oval Office meeting) and there are several text features (bold print, captions, diagrams, index, and pronunciation guide) that will enrich your teaching of the structure of nonfiction. Add this book to your collection of nonfiction mentor texts for k-2.
