Bunny Romero's White House Adventure: The Whole Megillah! is an educational children’s picture book written by Margie Blumberg and illustrated by Renee Andriani. Bunny is relatively new to the United States, and she’s quite excited about her upcoming class trip to the White House. You see, six months earlier, she had been noshing on Hamantashen her nana had sent to her from Mexico City, while she was looking at some beautiful pictures of the White House. Bunny missed her nana and still didn’t feel quite at home in her new country. She thought that if she could eat her grandmother’s Hamantashen in the White House, it would make her feel like she really belonged. So, when her teacher announced the class trip, Bunny was thrilled and excited. That morning, she and her classmates all climbed aboard the bus that would take them there, they toured the White House, and then prepared to leave -- but the Hamantashen was still in her pocket and Bunny still wanted to get to that kitchen. Could she get there and would they let her stay?
Margie Blumberg’s educational children’s storybook, Bunny Romero's White House Adventure: The Whole Megillah! is a marvelous way to share American history with young readers from the vantage point of a new citizen, Bunny. I loved seeing how Blumberg stresses the contributions immigrants have made at all stages in the history of this country and smiled when I saw Renee Andriani’s gorgeous illustrations of a White House filled with people of all nationalities. And Blumberg’s president had me standing up and cheering. Blumberg begins her book with a glossary of Spanish, Yiddish, Hebrew and English words and phrases, and she concludes her story with a Dream Diary for young readers to fill out, A Bissel of History and a recipe for Hamantashen. What more could you want? I love this book! It expresses so much of what makes this country great and what resides in all good Americans’ hearts. Bunny Romero's White House Adventure: The Whole Megillah! is most highly recommended.
