Book Review & Giveaway: Ella B. Jenkins meets President Barack Obama

Ella B. Jenkins meets President Barack Obama written by Eve Lynne & Desiree T Gordy and illustrated by Carlos Barnaby


The White House will never be the same! Ella B. Jenkins Meets Barack Obama is the first in a five volume series chronicling the adventures of Ella B. Jenkins. Ella and her class visit the White House and meet the President, but not before Ella find herself in a situation. Each book comes with an official Ella B. Jenkins bookmark. Please visit Ella’s store to order her book, as well as other amazing items your children will love.

My Review: Every child will be excited to meet the President of theUnitedState and Ella B. Jenkins was, when her letter to President Barack Obama won the writing contest at school. And her whole class is invited to the White House. But what was more exciting for Ella B was meeting the President after wandering off with the White House dog, Bo.

A well-written story targeted at ages 4 – 8. I recommend this book for classroom reading and discussion. The book also has questions for children to answer pertaining to the story at the back of the book.

Pages: 26

  3. I think this is a great way to get children interested in the office of President. Children seem to have lost the awe of the position and a book to get them excited again would be awesome.

  4. This sounds like a great series concerning Ella B. and our President.
    I totally agree with terrifore above that our kids have lost the awe of the position our President holds.

    I think it’s fun when books can incorporate real people and animals like the president and his dog. It gives kids a sense of really being there.
