Literature for young 'uns, DC's great read!

Each year, the literary heritage of the 50 states, DC and the US Virgin Islands is shared with the Library of Congress Center for the Book during the National Book Festival (September 26, 2009 on the mall).

DC's book is Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out, a creation of more than 100 authors and illustrators and the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance.   A Web site has been developed to complement the book; the site is geared toward adults to engender interest in and passion for this country's history with their children, grandchildren, and students.
