Sara and her class are listening to a tour guide droning on in the East Room, when George Washington leans out of his painting and plucks Sara into the ghost world. There, George gives her a personal tour, introducing her to thirty-five other ghost presidents, who tell her what it was like to live in the White House and face the problems of their times. In the State Dining Room, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson discuss the expedition of Lewis and Clark. In the Diplomatic Reception Room, Franklin Roosevelt speaks of the wonders of radio. And in the Oval Office, John F. Kennedy reminisces about his first day as president. Together the ghosts create a thought-provoking portrait of the challenges of being the nation's leader.
With short biographies of all forty-two presidents, a timeline, lots of fascinating trivia, and conversations between presidential ghosts who never met in life, Ghosts of the White House is an informative and entertaining look at U.S. history. This is a tour that Sara -- and the readers who join her -- will never forget!
