First Kids
  written by Gibbs Davis
illustrated by Sally Wern Comport
Random House, updated edition 2009
  Kids will be kids—even when they live in the White House! From Tad Lincoln (secretly called a “tyrant” ) to the Roosevelt gang (who kept a pet badger, a rat, dogs, snakes, horses, parrots, and a one-legged chicken!) to the Kennedys (who used the oval office as a playground) to Chelsea Clinton (who transformed herself from an awkward teen into an accomplished scholar) to the Obama daughters, the children featured in First Kids share a unique experience and role in American history.  
  Oppenheim Best Book, Gold Award  
  Davis knows her audience and focuses on the subjects that children love: pets, playing, family, and being naughty.
