If You Want a Friend in Washington by Erin McGill

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This is an excellent book. You will find it in the Children’s Dept. It is a non-fiction book. Everyone who loves trivia should check it out. It contains all sorts of facts about U.S. Presidents and their pets. It also gives you a small window into the sign of the times…..at first I was surprised to read about how many presidents had horses as “pets”. But it was brought out in the book that pet horses were a necessity. They were a primary source of transportation. The presentation and organization of this book made it an easy read. If you are a parent of a 8+ year old this might be a fun read aloud.
