TIME for Kids Presidents of the United States
It is always nice to have a good reference with lots of information in a focused format. This is that, and it is perfect for the middle-grade reader. It opens with an overview of the presidency, how it came about, and what it means. This is followed by a glimpse of the three branches of government and why we have political parties, then a page or two for each president. Included is a picture of the president, their date and place of birth and date of death, their political party, who served as vice-president, and information about their spouse and children. There is also a nice, concise write-up about the person, with key accomplishments. Each also has a timeline that highlights important dates. Occasionally there is an added “Did you know?” interesting fact, though not for every president. In addition there are short articles on westward expansion, how to become president, first ladies, and the White House. Everything is in color and arranged with bright graphics in an attractive, eye-catching layout. The writing is crisp and filled with fascinating facts. This is a book middle-graders will find both valuable and fun while they are learning about this important topic.
