Reviews - What do customers think about Don't Know Much About the Presidents?
A very entertaining overview of the Presidents Mar 8, 2007
Full of fun facts and humorous illustrations, this is an excellent introduction to the Presidents as well as a useful review tool for those of us who, ahem, already learned this stuff. I used it to get ready for a Jeopardy! appearance, and it served me well. I also recommend it as a helpful supplement to younger students as a painless way to fix each President firmly into place!
My daughter LOVES this book Mar 3, 2006
My 8-year-old daughter has literally memorized this book. I think what's so engaging are the quirky facts and the way they're presented. She has now asked me to get her any books I come across by Kenneth Davis. What more can you ask for: a book that is so educational but one that kids will read over and over, all of their own initiative.
A hilarious, informative history book Jan 18, 2006
This is an educational book that tells you about the presidents in a fun way. It gives interesting facts about their lives; like,for example, did you know George Washington's dentures were made of elephant and walrus tusks, cow, hippo, and even human teeth?! This book includes important dates, events, and timelines. Great illustrations. I would highly recommend you read this book for knowledge, and a few laughs!
Don't Know Much About the Presidents Dec 14, 2004
Excellent book and an easy read. This author makes history fun.
This book is the Best May 13, 2003
I like this book because it tells me all the facts about the presidents and I love to study presidents. My 14 year old sister needed help with her report on Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt and she asked me because she knew I would know some things! I have checked "Don't know much about the Presidents" out of the library and since I have to take it back, my dad said he would buy me my own copy to keep!
