Liberty Porter, First Daughter Series
In the first book, Liberty Porter's father has just been elected President of the United States. Liberty and her family attend the Inauguration, and then she explores different parts of the White House. Unfortunately, one of the grown-ups who runs the White House thinks that Liberty should do a lot of sitting still and staying out of the way. Liberty is nine years old and ready to help - and she can't do that if she's acting like a human statue!
Liberty is very positive and upbeat, and her parents ultimately support her efforts to help out, rather than expecting her to be a miniature adult. Conflicts and troubles are pretty light - getting caught by a few members of the public in her pajamas, sliding on the floor of the White House in front of someone who disapproves, going undercover on a White House tour and finding it boring, so moving the tour up to her new bedroom and starting a stuffed animal fight, and that kind of thing.
Throughout the book, Liberty shares lots of facts about past Presidents and the White House which may not be completely authentic to her character, but which do provide some fun historical information. No political party affiliation or specific issues are mentioned, and no recent Presidents are named. There are a few editing errors, but it's something fun for readers who want a little escapism without anything too scary.
