Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is part of a series called "Profiles of Presidents." The biography is very "user friendly" in that it gives information about George W. Bush and the period in which he lives, using simple words to discuss a complex topic. The early years show the influence his father had on the choices he made in education, sports, and ambition to be in politics. The photographs included provide an excellent reinforcement of the text. Also included, is a glossary, a two-page Life at a Glance, a 6-page parallel, a pictorial timeline and an additional Web site list for more resources. Much information is packed into this 64-page biography and students will be able to use this as an excellent reference when doing research. Reading about George W. Bush provides insight to the world of politics and the steps that lead up to becoming President of the United States. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 9 to 14.
