Children's LiteratureThis book details the life and career of President Woodrow Wilson. It begins with an examination of his childhood and continues with a look at his career in academiaincluding his stint as president of Princeton Universityhis ascension in the world of politics, and ultimately his tenure as President of the United States. The author attempts to strike a balance in examining the public and private life of Wilson, providing an engaging narrative that the reader should find appealing. In examining the tenure of Wilson as President, there is little analysis of Wilson's policies, as much of the text is spent recounting the events of his presidency. Photographs of Wilson and other significant figures of the time period are a nice supplement to the text. A time line of the major events in Wilson's life and chapter notes are included. Overall, this should prove to be an effective resource for high school students. 2005, Morgan Reynolds Publishing, Ages 14 to 18.
