Woodrow, the White House Mouse

Woodrow the White House Mouse - Peter Barnes, Cheryl Shaw Barnes

Woodrow, the White House Mouse is a very informative text for young readers! It gives students an opportunity to learn about the president, where he/she resides, and what jobs he/she might perform. The authors use a mouse to represent the president, making it amusing for young learners. I would love for students to act out the scenes depicted in this text. I think it would be beneficial to compare this text to other texts that relate to the president and the white house; this would allow students to compare and contrast fiction and nonfiction texts. This text would also be great when discussing American symbols!
