This book is a fantastic set induction to a unit or lesson on Presidents. The author provides a creative storyline to get the students interested in Presidents. The book disscusses a variety of different subjects relating to the president such as, the White House, diffferent sights in Washington, and how kids can write to the President and get a response. It can also be used to reinforce appropriate letter-writing structure. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to make the subject a little more fun for children. Of course, it is filled with fun stuff between Arthur, his pesty sister D.W., and friends.

I am a 1st grade teacher. My class and I always enjoy finding out about Arthur and his friends in the books written by Marc Brown. I especially like Arthur Meets the President. I use this book during the month of February as a literature connection to a theme study of presidents. Not only does this title lend itself to my curriculum but it also has a wonderful storyline dealing with a brother/sister relationship with all its ups and downs.

Arthur is so popular that my students tell me the names of the characters. This book will assist me in introducing the president and his role in the US government.

MY REVIEW OF ARTHUR MEETS THE PRESIDENT July 23 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
I like this book because it is special. I am nervous sometimes just like Arthur in the story. It also makes me think about all the places that are in the book. I want to go to Washington, D.C. one day and meet the President. But I hope I don't have to give a speech. D.W. made me laugh at the end. It also made me think and I'm going to help other people. A good book.

A Visit to Washington, D.C. May 12 2013
By Summerroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Arthur the aardvark wins the "How I Can Make America Great" contest. His whole class and his family win a trip to meet the President in Washington, D.C., and Arthur gets to deliver the speech.

Arthur, being an introspective and shy kid, is nervous that he will mess up the speech. His parents offer helpful advice: write your speech on index cards. Practice on the way.

The class has a blast visiting famous sites like the Washington Monument, the Capitol, the National Museum of Natural History, and the White House. These illustrations are whimsical and serve as good introductions to children about the U.S. capitol.

The White House tour includes some interesting facts. For example, every President except Washington has lived there. It has a barber shop, clinic, indoor pool, theater, etc.

The story is straightforward, and is mainly a vehicle to introduce young readers to the U.S. Capitol. I'd recommend for ages 5-8.
