Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Ronald Reagan had a rather unconventional rise to the presidency. This volume chronicles his life in a succinct way that students will understand. After a rocky childhood in Illinois, Reagan became a radio announcer, then Hollywood star. The story of his movie career will surprise many students, but so will his early career as a politician in California. Reagan did not seem destined for the White House, but after leading the Screen Actor's Guild and working on other political campaigns, Reagan set his sights on the governor's mansion, and ultimately, the White House. Foreign policy and economic decisions are presented in clear terms, covering some of the more controversial aspects of Reagan's presidency. There is an extensive bibliography and useful glossary and index. School libraries will be especially interested in this volume, as it will greatly aid students in social studies assignments.
