NCBLA Launches Upgraded OUR WHITE HOUSE Website with NEW Election and Presidency Content

The centerpiece of the home page is the revolving illustration gallery, featuring forty of the book’s original illustrations. Site visitors can click each illustration to read about the illustrator.

Just in time for helping young people across America understand the presidential campaigns and election, the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance has launched a newly designed and updated version of its nonpartisan, presidential history and civics education website

We invite you to explore this free, online companion to the NCBLA’s award-winning anthology Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out (Candlewick Press).

The website provides a treasure trove of exclusive articles that expand the rich content of the book, plus activities and discussion questions to help you engage with young people in informed discussions about politics and civic life, teach them to think critically, and work to energize our kids to learn more about the political process in America.

As the presidential debates begin and the November vote approaches, be sure to make use of the website feature: “Race to the Ballot: The Our White House Presidential Campaign and Election Kit for Kids,” an all-in-one resource you can use in the classroom, at home, at club meetings, and even on the go.
