My Take on the Book
This was a great book for any young reader that is interested in learning more about our Presidents. I loved how the book succinctly gives the reader a glimpse into the accomplishments of all of our Presidents as well as some other interesting facts and anecdotes about each and every one. I have been reading biographies of our Presidents and was interested to even read some anecdotes about some of the Presidents that were new to me as well. My daughter has been intrigued with our US Presidents for some time now, but up to date has been fixated on only a few of them. This book opened her eyes and her view of the men who have been US Presidents in the past, which has been great to see and experience.
