Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Learn all about Andrew Jackson, the seventh President of the United States of America, This book, which is part of the "Profiles of the Presidents" series, takes the reader back to the late-1700s when Jackson was born and describes his upbringing and living on his own at an early age, his involvement in battles and wars, his experiences of being a lawyer in Tennessee, how his interest in politics was developed, the impact he made while holding various political offices, how he secured America and created independence from Britain, his successes and downfalls that he provided for the American people while he was U.S. President, how he lived after his term was complete, and what he did with the remaining portion of his life until his death. The text is very well written and concise and flows together very well. The various illustrations throughout the chapters compliment the text well. A unique and sharp feature included is a comparison of what world events occurred during Jackson's life, e.g. when Jackson marries his wife Rachel in 1791; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, an Austrian composer dies in 1791. Also included is a table of contents, glossary, both personal and public life timeline of Jackson, list of U.S. Presidents, index, Internet sites, historical sites to visit, and books for additional reading. This is an excellent research tool for the library to use for those who want to learn more about the U.S. presidents or write a report. 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 9 to 12.
