Jimmy Carter: 39th President of the United States by Heidi M. D. Elston

The United States president preserves, protects, and defends the U.S. Constitution. Each president's term influences events in America and around the world for years to come. This biography introduces young readers to the life of George W. Bush beginning with his childhood in New Haven, Connecticut, and Midland, Texas. Information about Bush's education at Yale University and his early career in the oil business and as part owner of the Texas Rangers is discussed. In addition, his family and personal life is highlighted. Easy-to-read text details Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard and his political career as governor of Texas. Finally, students will explore key events from Republican president Bush's administration, including the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the passage of the USA Patriot Act, the beginning of the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, and the economic crisis. Beautiful graphics showcase the primary source documents and photographs. A timeline, fast facts, and sidebars help put essential information at students' fingertips. In addition, a quick-reference chart provides easy access to facts about every U.S. president.
