Even though millions of people visit the White House each year, it's also a home to the president and his family. It's a workplace for both those in the East Wing and West Wing, and it's a place where history is made through legislation and visits from foreign dignitaries. Because of all these functions, the White House has needed maintenance and additions over the years. This unique look at the most famous building in the United States uses a lens focused on fun as well as history! Full-color photographs and surprising fact boxes engage readers through 200 years of construction.
