Children's LiteratureJohn 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.
