Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Biography collections, a form unusual to find in adult books, provide great learning for children. Most often organized by subject, they can show differing perspectives and how those viewpoints are affected by era and background. Often these biography collections deliver a sum greater than their parts. Bausum devotes one to three pages to each president. The book has the slick-paged, picture-rich, sound-byte presentation that children like. It also has facts, humor and trivia, which unite to give a sense of the individuals and their times. For example, Ulysses S. Grant, known for his aggressive Civil War attacks, disliked hunting and got sick in his father's tanning shop. A photo shows four men resting in the oversized bathtub that was installed in the White House after 332 pound Taft got stuck in the standard-sized one. When the forty-three presidents are described between the covers of one book, children see the overall significance of how these leaders have served and changed our country. 2001, National Geographic Society, . Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Susie Wilde
VOYA
These two new books will be useful for students researching United States presidents and the times in which they served. Frey and Davis's contribution, The New Big Book of Presidents, devotes one or two pages to each president, providing interesting and well-written bibliographical information that is necessarily concise. For each president there is also a fact box with an illustration and summary, and additional fact boxes give cultural, social, or political information. On the page for Chester Arthur, who served from 1881-1885, there is a description of the Gilded Age and the chief accomplishments of Thomas Alva Edison, both current to the administration of the twenty-first president. George W. Bush is included, with side boxes on the computer age and education. A time line runs across each page, giving significant dates and events during each presidency. The book begins with a two-page summary of the American system of government and concludes with a brief glossary of terms. A foreword by President Bush introduces Bausum's book, Our Country's Presidents, which features the glossy paper and highly attractive photos and period artwork typically seen from this publisher. Each president is shown in a full-page color picture, and a nearby fact box gives essential biographical information. The book is divided into six chronological sections, with discussions and illustrated time lines of each period. There are ten short essays placed throughout the book on topics such as the White House, presidents who died in office, and the 2000 election. Also of interest is a chart of presidential election results, from 1789 to the present. Although Our Country's Presidents is the more attractive andinclusive of the two volumes, the overall quality and low cost of The New Big Book make it a worthwhile purchase as well. Index. Photos. Further Reading.
