These books take a lighter approach than most presidential biographies. The cartoon cover of George Bush shows a young George W. resting his feet on the president's desk. He asks: "Hey, Dad. Being president looks like fun. Do you think I could try it sometime?" Captioned photos intermingled with humorous art complement the clear, concise texts that follow the subjects from birth through their administrations. These titles are not as comprehensive as those in the "Encyclopedia of Presidents" series (Children's Press), but they contain enough information for brief reports, and the large print surrounded by white space will keep reluctant readers from feeling intimidated. Attractive additions to any library.
