East Wing – Ready To Read

In the sleigh in the East Wing you will find many of your favorite children's books. And throughout the White House, you will find story book characters spreading holiday cheer, including Curious George, Nancy Drew, and Stuart Little.

On the easel is a painting of the Diplomatic Reception Room by artist Barbara Ernst Prey which graces the cover of this year's holiday card. The Diplomatic Reception Room is used to welcome distinguished visitors, and more than sixty years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt recorded his radio "fireside chats" here. Doesn't it look like an inviting place to read ?
