very educational Oct 20, 2009
I bought this as a present for an 11 year old boy. He truly loves it and likes all the facts about the presidents. Don't expect too much tough its not a big book just a magazine size one with great facts for kids who like to learn!
Beware of the Bias Jan 30, 2009
I bought this book for my 8 year old grandson, but I am returning it. I wanted him to be informed, not endoctrinated. I.e., "Reagan thought that if the rich spent more money, it would 'trickle down" and help all levels of the economy, so he lowered taxes on the wealthy." Reagan's tax cuts were for ALL levels of income and brought about an era of prosperity that lasted until the policies of the Clinton administration brought it down in 1999. And, "The President (Clinton) ...worked to improve health care in the U.S. The U.S. is the only modern nation in the world that doesn't provide health care for all of its citizens." Some would say this is a GOOD THING. Also says, Clinton was not found guilty of "illegal charges." He lost his law license because he lied under oath and was found guilty. And, on and on. Don't buy it. Teach your kids the truth.
Presidents book Jan 7, 2009
I bought this book for my 8 year old grandson for Christmas. My daughter reported to me that this book was a huge hit with him. He has not put it down yet. He is continually reading about the Presidents and sharing what he reads with his family. His school has assigned a report on a President for President's day and he is so excited about writing it now that he has this resource. The design of the book is very well done--one page per president with color pictures of the president and a short bio and facts. He can read this book himself and does so before bedtime. My daughter said it was a super selection.

Time for Kids: President of the United States Apr 13, 2008
My son took this book to show at his Wolves (Cub Scouts) den meeting. Everyone loved it including the parents. It is very informative and it is easy to read. I would recommend this for everyone who is interested in the history of the Presidents of the United States.
