Children's LiteratureThese short "Rookie Biographies" are perfect for emergent readers. They feature people in the news as well as famous men and women of the past. George Walker Bush seemed destined for the presidency of the United States. His father had served his country in that capacity and George W. took all the necessary steps to follow in his father's foot steps. He went to Yale, he worked in the oil industry. He married and fathered twin daughters. He got into politics at the state level and served as governor of Texas. After two terms as governor, he decided to try for the presidency and won the closest race in American history. The biography is sufficient for its intended audience, and it is filled with pictures of the man and the highlights of his career. There is a pictorial words to know section at the end of the text, an index and a brief blurb about the author. 2003, Children's Press, Ages 5 to 7.
