The House That George Built
by Suzanne Slade and Rebecca Bond




Overview -
THE HOUSE THAT GEORGE BUILT takes readers through the process of how the president's house came to be--starting with the contest George held to choose the perfect design for this legendary landmark, all the way to President John Adams's move into the grandiose home. Cleverly written in the familiar format of The House That Jack Built, author Suzanne Slade supplements her rhyming verse with lively conversational prose, describing how George was involved in this project from beginning to end, from selecting the location to figuring out how to get the thousands of heavy bricks to the construction site. Rebecca Bond's watercolor illustrations help readers follow the steps to what became the White House as we know it today.
