Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up—Who was the only president to be elected unanimously by the electoral college? When did the first modern campaign take place? Which president was ticketed for driving his horse with excessive speed? What role did Carry A. Nation, The Little Rock Nine, or Seal Team Six play in U.S. history? These questions and more are answered in this fifth update of the 1994 edition (the previous update appeared in 2009). Front matter includes a usage guide that describes how to look up a particular president, find out who was in office in a partiular year, locate election results, and learn about important events and people. Presidents are covered in a chapter each. The top corners of the pages denote the years during which the man ruled; each entry opens with vital details-birth and death dates, party affiliation, Vice President, First Lady, and children, if any, and nickname. Also provided in this opening information is a fun fact; for example, James Madison was the first president to regularly wear trousers (before him they wore knee breeches). Featured events during each presidency may include literature and the arts, inventions, or notable individuals. President signatures, campaign details, and newspaper-style clips add color. With the additional information on newly elected commanders in chief, this title offers students the opportunity to gain a solid foundation of information on American history and its leaders.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District

    Great pictures

    I found this book very informative on a basic level. If you want to get more in depth on each president then you need to get a biography. But if you are looking for a small review on each president, and the things that happened during their presidency and life, this is a good book.

    OUTSTANDING

    I just love this book! It talks about all 43 presidents of the United States. My favorite president I have to say is John Fitzgerald Kennedy. And my favorite First Lady is Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Well this book does not only talk about presidents it also talks about Houdini,Babe Ruth, Elvis,Jackie Robinson,Martin Luther King, and much more!
