About this title


Describes the various kinds of pets, including bears and alligators, kept at the White House by various presidents from George Washington to George H.W. Bush.

From the Inside Flap:

President John Quincy Adams had an unusual pet an alligator! He kept it in the East Room of the White House. But President Adams wasn’t the only commander-in-chief with an unusual pet. Along with a menagerie of dogs, cats, horses, and birds, presidents and their families also had pet snakes, raccoons, bears, cows, mice, and more.

Meet Thomas Jefferson’s mockingbird, Dick, who ate from the president’s mouth; Warren Harding’s dog, Laddie Boy, who was served a birthday cake made of dog biscuits; and Teddy Roosevelt’s pony, Algonquin, who rode up the White House elevator. Read all about the presidents’ pets with Mrs. Tucker’s elementary class and then vote for your favorite White House pet!
|Our U.S. presidents had all kinds of pets—lots of dogs and cats, of course—but they also had some very strange pets. Look inside to find your favorite pet.
