Jefferson thought that many English laws and taxes were unfair, so he studied hard to become a lawyer and help make better laws. Soon he and others came to believe that the colonies should become a new country, and Jefferson was chosen to write the Declaration of Independence.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meet Thomas Jefferson (Landmark Books)?
Great little book Aug 14, 2007
Being a foreigner, I am still learning American history and a good friend of mine advised me to get children's books as they are easier to read and get the basics from.
I picked up this little nugget today at a used bookstore, and had my nine-year old start reading it to me on the way home. As much as she protested at the start, she is now enjoying the book, and when I read a couple of chapters to her before bed, she said "That's all?" I think she likes it now. :-)
This book tells the basic story of the various periods of Thomas Jefferson's life and times and is a wonderful introduction to him.
Get hooked... Apr 10, 2007
This book, and the others in the series, jumpstarted my love of reading back in the 70's. I now have children of my own and have had difficulty getting my youngest son to complete his reading assignments. He literally hated to read until he found this book - a long lost relic - at his grandmother's. He loved it! I have since purchased several others of the 'Meet x' series and each one is greeted with an eager smile. A well written, easily read book that captures the imagination. You won't be disappointed.
Easy-to-read history book Sep 18, 2002
This is a great book for older remedial students as well as grades 1-4. The primary facts are here with some illustrations. The text is simple and easily understood.
Not What I Was Looking For Jan 25, 2001
This book was not what I was looking for. My teacher assigned us a Biography/Autobiography book report (like every month), and I checked this book out in the library. Yeah, maybe its ok for 4-8 year olds, this book is really boring for children like me. This book had stuff I already knew about, and I didn't learn anything. It was really boring and had no interesting facts. So, if you are looking for a book with a detailed scope about Thomas Jefferson, read another book.
