I am so glad Amazon offers Dover's coloring books! This is another fantastic resource by Dover. It doesn't have all the Presidential homes, but there sure are a lot. There were many I had never seen, and it offered the opportunity to discuss the architecture of the homes at the same time as the specific President's place in history. Sometimes I will photocopy a page, so my kids can use watercolors on it while I read from the book. Some of them use crayons, some go for more detail with colored pencils, but they all love it.

My eight year old loves the presidents, so he got very excited when this came in the mail. He has already colored about half of the book! He also loved that it is not just pictures, but facts as well.

From old cabins to great houses are the way out Presidents lived

A few presidents are left out entirely. And some just have birthplaces or childhood homes shown. For instance, Truman, JFK, and LBJ only have birthplace homes shown, and all three of those presidents have large historic homes still standing. The artist should have shown those houses instead.

I am greatly enjoying coloring these pictures, as there are a wide variety of house styles and they are all very well drawn.

Although probably of interest to many, I personally could have done without the drawing of the President who was born there, or lived there, which is superimposed on most pages along with the house, as my interest is only in the houses.

However, the information given about each President is interesting.

The drawings have intricate, small details--not for a young child. This is a coloring book for an adult who is interested in architecture.

Got this book at the Monticello bookstore and, while it's been fun to color, it has a number of perplexing elements.

First, the choices of houses are odd. For some presidents, two houses are included. This is perfectly fine and can help tell the story of a president like Lincoln.

But Presidents Monroe, Taylor, Fillmore, Arthur, Cleveland, McKinley, and Ford are left out entirely. Meanwhile, William Henry Harrison, the shortest-serving President ever, gets two houses in this book. What gives, Bruce?

Second, the portraits, as the previous reviewer pointed out, don't add much. And their execution leaves something to be desired. Franklin Roosevelt's portrait makes him look like an ice-cream man. Jack Kennedy looks like he is on xanax, and poor LBJ just looks like he hasn't slept in a week and just went three rounds with George Foreman.
I love American history, and I love to color. So these coloring books are a perfect fit for me. The paper is nice quality and not easily torn as in children's coloring books. I would recommend these to friends and purchase them again.
