Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Donnelly briefly and clearly covers the events surrounding theassassination and funeral of John Kennedy. This account is for a slightly younger audience than is R. Conrad Stein's The Story of the Assassination of John F. Kennedy (Childrens, 1985). Donnelly uses fewer quotations from press accounts and from speeches than does Stein, and omits mention of the international reaction to the events of those four days. However, the use of the actual news photos of events, many in color, rather than the drab re-drawings of the photos used in Stein's book makes Who Shot the President? visually more inviting. It will certainly give young readers an adequate idea of the impact of the assassination and subsequent events on Americans. --Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, Mass.

    when i think of him

    Whenever i think of john and where i was the day he died i become saddened. sad at what he could have become. maybe he could have gotten a doctorite and become 'Doctor J' or maybe he could have saved us from the civil war. but i am not here to talk about who he could have been. i am here to talk about who he was and who he touched. whenever i am down i just say 'gee golly, at least i wanst the one who was shot' and i feel all better. and if that doesnt work i just think of his most legendary quote. i'll end on that note: 'i need this parade like i need a hole in my head' - john (dr j)
