Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
John Adams was the first vice-president to George Washington, and in 1797, became the second president of the United States. His son John Quincy Adams became the sixth president. Adams grew up on a farm and, like his father, wanted to be a farmer. Instead, he entered Harvard College and became a lawyer. Adams entry into politics began when he argued against the Stamp Act, which British Parliament placed on the American colonists. In 1770, Adams was elected to the Massachusetts legislature, and later, in 1776, he became a member of the committee responsible for writing the Declaration of Independence. Adams was the first president to live in the White House. Although it was not finished, he moved in during November 1800. He served a four-year term as president and wanted to be remembered for establishing peace with France in 1800. This is a well-researched book with black and color photographs. A glossary, time line and Internet sites are included. 2003, Compass Point Books, Yannuzzi
