Bob Kolar’s illustration in Our WhiteHouse: Looking In, Looking Out is both a trivia game and a presidential timeline -- with the last space left blank. Now Bob Kolar has created images of John McCain and Barack Obama that kids can print and stick in order to complete their copy of the book when the winner of the 2008 election is announced.  Print the images on a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 sticky-backed label paper.  Cut along the dotted lines and around the image of the next president and then remove the backing and place the image over the question mark on space #44 on page 225 of your copy of Our White House
