I found this book very informative on a basic level. If you want to get more in depth on each president then you need to get a biography. But if you are looking for a small review on each president, and the things that happened during their presidency and life, this is a good book.

I just love this book! It talks about all 43 presidents of the United States. My favorite president I have to say is John Fitzgerald Kennedy. And my favorite First Lady is Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Well this book does not only talk about presidents it also talks about Houdini,Babe Ruth, Elvis,Jackie Robinson,Martin Luther King, and much more!
