Poems about White House Pets by Marilyn Singer, illustrations by Ryan McAmis, PICTURE BOOK Disney Hyperion, 2019, $18. 9781484789995 BUYING ADVISORY: EL - ADVISABLE AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE From George Washington to current time, most of our presidents have had pets of one kind or another. Some belonged to their wives or children, some were gifts from other countries or leaders, and some have made their own history -- like president Lincoln's turkey which was pardoned and not eaten on Thanksgiving, or George Bush Sr.'s dog Millie. An informative collection of poems - I learned a lot about Presidential Pets. Marilyn Singer's verses are whimsical and clever. Ryan McAmis' mixed media illustrations are great, it was fun to take a closer look at them. Includes 10 pages of text at the end with blurbs about each presidential pet - and a little about each president - pet owner or not!. I was grateful for it, and after only a few poems read the blurb 1st and the poem 2nd. Much better - context is everything! Lisa Librarian https://kissthebookjr.blogspot.com/20...

Each poem in Who Named Their Pony Macaroni? has a fun, bouncy vibe. The charming artwork emphasizes the creative nature of the poetry; I loved the 3-D paper cutout look. I frequently ran my fingers across the page, sure that I’d feel a texture. Who Named Their Pony Macaroni? just begs to be read out loud! Words like “hollering” put out an emphatic mood, while “menagerie” and “serpenticide” introduce exciting new vocabulary to young readers. You’ll find yourself singing along with LBJ and Yuki, or maybe humming “Sweet Caroline” with the dun-dun-dun at the end.

    The White House has been home to a menagerie of animals. Some of the animals are well-known pets, while other pets were a bit "different".  The book employed mixed-media illustrations as a companion to the humor infused poems. However, I can't say I was a complete fan of all of the poems. Mostly because I don't really "understand" poems and I didn't know some of the facts in the poems. Thankfully, the author did include a blurb for each president but, I probably should have read it before readin The White House has been home to a menagerie of animals.

    Sort of odd turns of phrase here -- makes me think it would lack some kid appeal but didn't share in a storytime to find out. Sort of odd turns of phrase here -- makes me think it would lack some kid appeal but didn't share in a storytime to find out.
