Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
John Tyler was never elected president. He ran as the vice presidential candidate with William Henry Harrison, but after just a month in office, Harrison died unexpectedly. This left the country with a huge dilemma. This was the first president who had died in office, and no one was quite sure what should happen. John Tyler stepped up to the plate, and made the most important decision of his presidency by assuming office. This book introduces children to the life of President John Tyler in a humorous, yet historically-accurate way. His delightful cartoons about the stories of President Tyler's life make learning fun. The large type combined with the numerous pictures and photographs add interest and lessen the difficulty of the text. Children who are learning about the United States Presidents will benefit by reading any of the books in this series which would certainly be a great addition to any school library. 2005, Scholastic, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Just one look at the covers of these three titles is enough to intrigue readers. Each book has a cartoon on the front mixing a bit of humor with historical fact-the one for our 10th president has John Tyler looking over an array of wigs, saying he's getting ready to join the Whig party. Venezia tells each president's story by assembling fascinating information, portraits, paintings, photographs, and more cartoons. The men's lives are clearly portrayed from childhood through their years in office until their deaths. Great for reports, these books also make for interesting recreational reading, and the comics serve as memory aids. Beneficial additions to any collection.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
