Reviews

The author uses his trademark Q&A format to detail the lives of the 43 men who have led the nation, including amusing stories, each president's term, a timeline and a presidential quote. Ages 6-9. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Gr 4-6-A lighthearted look at the presidency and the men who have held the office. Using a question-and-answer format, Davis profiles each president in chronological order accompanied by a portrait and a memorable quote to introduce the entry. The text and colorful cartoons show the idiosyncrasies of the man and aspects of his administration. The pictures add a note of whimsy; e.g., George Washington is shown trying to decide whether to use the title "Super-dude" or "High-muck-a-muck." A time line enumerates remarkable events that took place during each presidency. The book is similar to Kathleen Krull's Lives of the Presidents (Harcourt, 1998) and Judith St. George's So You Want to Be President (Philomel, 2000). Useful where presidential trivia is in demand.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

"A lighthearted look at the presidency and the men who have held the office."--School Library Journal
