Madeline At The White House Book Giveaway

Monday, January 10, 2011

My girls always loved reading Madeline and several of the books. It had never crossed my mind to introduce sweet little Madeline to my three year old son until recently. When Madeline At The White House arrived at our door he immediately asked to read it. He loved the rhymes and just how one page so easily flowed into the next. Not only did those two things keep his attention but it also didn't drag out. This is always a plus when reading to a three year old!

About The Book:
Welcome to America, Madeline!


Madeline and friends are off to enjoy a wonderful American adventure. The White House in Washington, D.C., is their destination, where they are the guests of the president’s lonely only daughter for the annual Easter Egg Roll. Cake and ice cream, dress-up games, and scary stories told in the dark are capped off by a magical nighttime tour of the capital’s most famous landmarks, before it’s time for the twelve little girls in two straight lines to say, “Au revoir, America!”








The Story Behind The Book:
“The idea for sending Madeline to the White House was my grandfather’s and grew out of his friendship with Jacqueline Kennedy. In a series of letters from late 1961 and early 1962, my grandfather sounded out the First Lady on ideas for the book, which he proposed calling “Madeline visits Caroline,” with text from Mrs. Kennedy herself. My grandfather died in 1961, before the book was finished.” – John Bemelmans Marciano, author and illustrator of Madeline at the White House and grandson of Madeline creator Ludwig Bemelmans

 WIN,WIN,WIN
