The Arthur series by Marc Brown are stories with life lessons. Arthur Meets the President is the story of Arthur winning a contest and meeting the President in the Rose Garden. The class enters an essay contest and Arthur wins, but is expected to memorize and recite his speech. Arthur constantly worries about doing well, and Muffy doesn’t do much to help until the end when she provides some comic relief. His entire class is invited to the event and some explanation of their tour of Washington CD helps students connect with famous places such as the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the White House, the Capitol, and the National Museum of Natural History. If you are wanting to provide some familiarity of Washington D.C. for a unit about Presidents or Patriotism, this book will help your students or children understand some of this at their level.
