Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Everyone knows the president of the United States has a big job, but what exactly does he do? How did he get his job? Where does he live and work? Author Dell introduces young readers to the executive branch of the U.S. government in this highly illustrated picture book in the “My First Picture Encyclopedia” series. More than one hundred facts and definitions cover a wide range of topics related to the presidency, from the election process to famous presidential pets. The book includes portraits of all forty-four presidents and highlights several with individual entries, such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and more. The title does not shy away from America’s controversial or tragic events. Entries in the section “Memorable Presidents” include the Trail of Tears, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the Watergate scandal. However, none of the wars in the Middle East are mentioned, nor is the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. An editor’s note to parents, teachers and librarians indicates the book is designed to provide an early introduction to reference materials. All books in the series include a table of contents and a page with additional resources. The publisher’s targeted audience, students in preschool to second grade, seems ambitious, given the vocabulary and level of comprehension required to make a sensible whole from so many unique entries. Children may enjoy browsing through the book, but those accustomed to a narrative will need guidance to understand how to use it as a reference book. Reviewer: Keri Collins Lewis AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 8.
