School Library Journal Chooses Our White House as one of the Best Children's Books of 2008!
The NCBLA's creative tour de force, Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out has been Chosen by School Library Journal as one of the "Best Books" Published for Young People in 2008!
Librarians are our heroes, so this wonderful distinction given to Our White House means a great deal! We are thrilled and grateful! Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out was created by the NCBLA to ignite young people's interest in the history of our nation and inspire them to read more. We also hope that it can be used by librarians, teachers, and parents to engage young people in critical thinking, urging them to seek information from multiple, reliable sources! And all of the royalties from Our White House will help the NCBLA continue its educational outreach as well as advocacy work fighting for young people's educational opportunities and for America's libraries!
Thank you School Library Journal!
