Buy. I'd buy this book because if you check it out from the library you won't want to return it!
This book is filled with fascinating material about the White House and those who lived there. It should kindle a young person's interest in politics as well as American history.
Not only is this a valid research book for any home or school library but just plain fun to read as well. You can read just a few chapters at a time, focus on a particular president or just dive into the whole volume.
