Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Lynn Evarts
Eisenhower and Wilson are both presidents closely connected to tumultuous times in our history, one as a president and one as a well-respected military leader before his election. In this series, both presidents' lives are covered from birth to death, with discussion of their early influences, their families, and the careers which propelled each man into the political spotlight of the times. Both men were two-term presidents, so their elections, as well as their service in the White House, are also covered. A simple chronology, as well as a glossary, short list of websites, and further readings are offered to those seeking more information. Marshall Cavendish has created a pitch-perfect presidential biography series that will serve many purposes. The size makes it ideal for that one-hundred page biography assignment; the readability makes the titles accessible to reluctant readers in high school; the succinct, well-presented information makes the volumes fitting for initial research at both the middle and high school level. The photos and illustrations add to each man's story and the time period he lived and served in, without dominating the books, and the fact boxes give short bursts of trivia that are timely and interesting.

Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
This is a fantastically well written biography of Woodrow Wilson. It includes his entire life in a chronological fashion with authentic photography, political cartoons and quotes from the people who knew him. The design of the print, photographs and graphics are well done and easy to follow. Wilson's life is told in a way that is engaging to the reader with facts that support the importance of decisions he made that shaped him and ultimately the country. Wilson's life is colorful and some of the drama that makes growing up memorable is colorfully portrayed in the context of the facts in this book. The glossary, appendix and primary source information in the back of the book enhance the text and allow for a forward thinking child to find more information if wanted. There is a combination of web sites and other resources easily accessible and in checking out the sites, they were active links. This is one of a series about Presidents and their lives written by this book publisher. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson
