Hey, this was great. Interesting peeks at the Obama family... President Barack, First Lady Michelle, daughters Malia annd Sasha, and dog Bo (a Portugese water dog given to them by Sen. Ted Kennedy (see My Senator and Me). Family times - growing a vegetable garden and having a swing set on the White House grounds-Secret Service information, tidbits about their 132 room home - all accompanied with lovely illustrations (paintings?) and added informational notes at the end . The 4 - 7 age range seems low. I think kids of all ages would enjoy this.

Good book!
