Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
We tend to remember that John Kennedy was the youngest president when he was elected at age 43, but almost equally impressive is the fact that he first came to Washington to represent Massachusetts in Congress when he was only 29. From that very first election until today, the whole Kennedy clan became involved in Kennedy campaigns. There is passing reference to Kennedy's personal and political mistakes, but the overall tone reflects his status as a national hero: "He inspired Americans to help the poor, to aid other countries, and to protect the rights of everyone." For someone who achieved so much as an adult, it is interesting to read of Kennedy's childhood in the shadow of his older brother Joe—he was sickly, his grades were average, and he often got into trouble. He was president for only three years, but during that time he dealt with the Cuban Missile Crisis, the construction of the Berlin Wall, the creation of the Peace Corps, and the build-up of America's nuclear weapon stockpile. Each profile in this presidential series is indexed with a list of historical sites, websites, additional books, and a glossary. The type is large, with frequent illustrations and photos, including many personal family pictures. The timeline for each president is particularly interesting, offering two columns side by side for personal and world events. Students can see, for example, that women won the right to vote in the US when Kennedy was a toddler. The style and writing quality vary from book to book, but the series provides interesting reading and a very good resource for student research. 2002, Compass Points Books,
