I received a free copy of the book. Opinions shared are mine.

What a delightful book! Kids need to be exposed to poetry, and this book raises the standard for children’s poetry books everywhere. Author Marilyn Singer takes the highly engaging topic of pets, adds the historical angle by focusing on Presidential pets, and sprinkles in a solid dose of humor.

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 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".

Mostly because I don't really "understand" poems and I didn't know some of the facts in the poems.

I love books like this one that teaches kids about the history of the pets in the White House in the most positive way ever!

You learn about who had the first pardoned turkey to which first lady had silk worms as a pet and even, a cow who provided fresh milk and butter for the family! Each poem is short and sweet with a bit of history included that makes it fun to learn about all these pets that have lived in the White House. I think my favorite part was in the back with each president getting a
