Colorfully illustrated board book by Howard M. Kurtz. Over the past 200 years, our U.S. presidents and their families have welcomed many different pets into the White House. Ponies and puppies and cats and mice and a raccoon—and even an alligator—have spent time in this historic home. In this book, you’ll see some of those White House pets with the names of the presidents who welcomed these fluffy, furry, and feathered friends into their home. This edition of the White House Pets board book includes “Bo,” one of the Obama family’s Portuguese Water Dogs. 24 pages.
