Description

Have you ever thought about being President of the United States? There are good things and bad things about the job. One good thing is you get to live in a giant house with a movie theater, swimming pool, and even a bowling alley! But on the other hand, sometimes people don't like Presidents. Once, somebody was so angry he threw a cabbage at President William Howard Taft. Are you smart enough to be President? Thomas Jefferson was an expert on politics, law, music, geography, and more--plus he played the violin, founded the University of Virginia, and designed his own mansion. But nine Presidents never even went to college, including Abraham Lincoln. Andrew Johnson didn't even know how to write until after he was married! Award-winning author Judith St. George's book is a humorous and informative look at America's highest office. Learning about the Presidents has never been more entertaining than with Brian Keeler's lively narration.

Professional reviews

"Judith St. George shares delightful details--the "good things" and the "bad things" about United States presidents from Washington to Clinton. The traits include the definitive, such as a discussion of presidential size; the humorous, such as a description of the bathtub of William Howard Taft; the catchy, such as the number of presidents with the name John; and the intimate, such as the antics of Teddy Roosevelt's children. She poignantly touches on deeper issues: presidents who have not been prepared for the office, those who have not been honest, and the responsibilities and possibilities of the job. Brain Keeler sets a fast, dignified pace, and it takes multiple listenings to assimilate all the details. As this title was a Caldecott winner, the listening experience is enriched by having the book in hand. David Small's illustrations add such detail to the narration that the listener comes away with a much more comprehensive appreciation of the presidential office. A.R.
