Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Andrew Jackson was not the typical presidential candidate. As a child he was fatherless, poor, fought a lot and even swore. Then the revolutionary war changed his life. At age 15 he was a war veteran and an orphan. He certainly was not the typical candidate to become the president of the United States. Children can learn this, plus facts about his time spent as a judge, his wife, and even funny facts about outhouses. In this fun look at the life of Andrew Jackson, children will learn history in a humorous way. Each page consists of large type and either a photograph, cartoon, or drawing of the event from the text. Venezia's humor is cleverly captured in the drawings about the life of the seventh president of the United States. This series about the Presidents will capture the attention of children who are learning about them for the first time. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Just one look at the covers of these three titles is enough to intrigue readers. Each book has a cartoon on the front mixing a bit of humor with historical fact-the one for our 10th president has John Tyler looking over an array of wigs, saying he's getting ready to join the Whig party. Venezia tells each president's story by assembling fascinating information, portraits, paintings, photographs, and more cartoons. The men's lives are clearly portrayed from childhood through their years in office until their deaths. Great for reports, these books also make for interesting recreational reading, and the comics serve as memory aids. Beneficial additions to any collection.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
