I gathered our 6 and 8 year old boys, and they sat and listened and asked questions as we read this book. Think the beautiful illustrations at first drew them in. Both boys are active in sports and were delighted to know that a President played football, just like them.
Both had heard of President Reagan, but didn't know much about him. Now they live on a farm, but they were amazed that the President lived on a Ranch. Wow...and even rode horses. When they listened to all that this man had accomplished in his life time, they decided that maybe they would like to become President someday...they liked the looks of that big White House!
When we went through the highlights in the back of the book they wanted to know how close he lived to where their Aunt lives in Illinois. We looked it up on the map and it wasn't to far.
They were surprised that the President had been shot while in office, and were so glad he lived. We talked about some bad men that want to take away what is good.
This is a great educational book for Children, it kept their attention right to the end, and made for some interesting side research. I highly recommend this as a keeper.
I received this book through TLC Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
