Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This country's 19th President was so sick as a baby that very few people thought he would survive his first few years of childhood. Hayes was a very fair man and he brought this quality with him to the White House. He was a fascinating person and a man who desperately loved his wife. Seven chapters provide all sorts of detail about the life of this great president, with titles such as "The Warrior Politician," "Preparing for Greatness" and "Bringing Change to Washington." Numerous photographs pepper the chapters, many with "picture frames," giving the impression of actually being in a presidential portrait gallery. Illustrations and a map are also included. At the end of the book there is a glossary containing words that have appeared in bold the first time they are used in the text, Hayes's life at-a-glance (personal and public), a listing of U. S. Presidents and their years in office, and a suggested reading list, Web sites and places to visit across the country. Topping it off is a timeline that parallels world events to those happening in the life of Hayes, an eye-opening way to absorb a larger view of the world. Not only will readers learn the biographical information about this president, but a great deal about the Electoral College, the formation of the United States and the reconstruction following the Civil War. The author has written a number of books for young readers and also writes for magazines and newspapers. He and his wife and son live outside Chicago, IL. As part of the "Profiles of the Presidents" series, this book is recommended. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 12.
