The Buck Stops Here: The Presidents of the United States Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic, poetic introduction to the forty-four presidents!

Do you know which president never attended school? Which president had fifteen children? The first president to keep an automobile at the White House? The only unelected president?

 

The Buck Stops Here is filled with fascinating details that tell the history of the forty-four presidents of the United States. Campaign slogans and songs, scandals, wars, accomplishments, and failures color each page and bring life to each president as a unique historical personality.

 

In a book that is truly for all ages, Alice Provensen give us a close, personal view, in pictures and text, of our presidents, as well as a visual and social history of our country.

Synopsis:

This updated version of The Buck Stops Here is filled with fascinating details that enliven the histories of the presidents of the United States, from George Washington to Bill Clinton. The lighthearted rhymed text will help readers remember the names of the presidents in sequence, and the pictures connect each president to his contributions--distinguished or dubious--to American history.
