Presidential Child's Play

  • Amy Carter(above on sofa) liked to play in a treehouse on the South Lawn. Once she brought books to a fancy state dinner and quietly read "The Story of the Gettysburg Address" and "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" during the meal. A friendly senator tried to get her to stop reading and eat her spinach.

ยท Chelsea Clinton (above) ate dinner with her father and mother, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a room that used to be a butler's pantry, because the private dining room in the residence was too fancy. She took cooking lessons from the White House's head chef before she went to college.
