Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
From the “Let’s Celebrate” series comes this photographic celebration of America’s Presidents. Held every February, the holiday honors their achievements, in particular described and shown here are Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. These two presidents stand out as the fathers of our nation, and are much respected and loved for what they did to hold our nation together. Lincoln led the country during the Civil War, which tore our country in two, and Washington fought bravely with his army during The Revolutionary War against the British, to claim our independence. The text is simply written and urges young readers to think and participate in ways to honor our presidents. It is troublesome that we do not see more than two these Presidents in the book. Young children may be excited to see the guide to writing a letter to the President, and become engaged in doing activities for this patriotic Holiday. There are brief sections such as an activity page, glossary, index, and a listing of Internet websites to search for more information. The full-page photographs are attractive and close ups of paintings, as is the sculpture but these pieces only depict two of the above mentioned presidents. What young readers are missing is a view of other presidents, or at least a poster with some of their names, faces, and accomplishments. Encouraging early readers to look for information about a former president might be another way to make them realize how significant and impressive presidents are, and why we have a holiday to celebrate them. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 5 to 8.
