Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This lively story--Brown's 15th about goggle-eyed Arthur--features the popular aardvark winning a "How I Can Help Make America Great" contest. Arthur and his classmates are excited about attending the special ceremony at the White House, but when Arthur learns he has to recite his winning essay on TV "while all America looks on," he is terrified. In the end, when Arthur's notes are blown away by the helicopter's wind, it is his irrepressible sister D.W. who saves the day and underscores Brown's message that "we can all help to make America great by helping others." Brown's attention to visual details provides much of the book's humor, and Arthur fans will delight in deciphering D.W.'s list of ideas about how to run the country. Although the appearance of too many characters makes the text seem needlessly disjointed, Brown's sensitivity to Arthur's frets is right on target. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- In this latest book about Arthur, the aardvark wins an essay contest, and he, his class, and his family are invited to Washington, D. C. to meet the president at a special ceremony. Unfortunately, Arthur has to memorize his essay and is too nervous to enjoy the preparations for the big event. In Washington, the class catches glimpses of the Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, and the National Museum of Natural History. Then it's on to the White House. But Arthur's carefully prepared notes are blown away by the presidential helicopter; in the somewhat flat and abrupt ending, sister D. W. saves the day by hanging upside down in a tree while holding the text of the speech. The bright, full-color illustrations are lively, and Brown portrays the emotions and facial expressions of the characters well. While the book is definitely not as strong an entry as others in the series, teachers and parents looking for easy fiction on the presidency and Washington will want this; kids, as always, will want the newest of Arthur's stories. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI

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.

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.

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.
