'1,000 Facts about the White House' by Sarah Wassner Flynn is definitely worth reading. From facts about why the rooms are named as they are in the White House to interesting facts about first ladies, pets, and food as related to the presidency, there is something for everyone.

There are plenty of interesting facts that even the most well-versed presidential fanatics can find at least one that they may not have known before. It is also nice how the facts are arranged so that the connections are pretty sequential. Learning the layout of the White House and when certain wings were added adds a lot to the points being made, showing that the home has evolved as time has passed.

No matter whether your favorite president is George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, or anyone who has come before or after, you are sure to find something that will engage your interest and round out your understanding of not only the White House, but also the importance of the highest office one can hold in the United States.
