In Have Fun with the Presidents you will learn that* Herbert Hoover and his wife spoke Chinese in the White House as a way of maintaining their privacy* Dwight Eisenhower was an enthusiastic cook who loved grilling on the roof of the White House* Two of Theodore Roosevelt's sons managed to sneak a pony into a White House elevator so they could take it to their sick brother's bedroom* George H.W. Bush hated broccoli so much he had it banned from the White House kitchen* And much more!
