Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

and#160;
In this fascinating story, readers spend a day with Thomas Jefferson as he and his grandson visit the vast plantation of Monticello. Readers learn about Jefferson; the gadgets and household items that he reinterpreted and the plow he invented; the famous house; the surrounding farms with their gardens, fields, factories, and mills; the workshops of the enslaved people on Mulberry Row; and much, much more.

The book is illustrated with archival as well as newly commissioned illustrations and includes a timeline, bibliography, and index.

Praise for Thomas Jefferson

andquot;The illustrations include excellent photos of sites, artifacts, and documents as well as paintings that extend the text. The lightly fictionalized, engaging narrative, which includes many conversations, is bolstered by sidebars offering additional information...andquot;

--Booklist

andquot;After finishing this beautifully illustrated book, also stocked with abundant photographs of artifacts housed at Monticello, readers will be left more curious than ever about the life and accomplishments of Thomas Jefferson.andquot;

Synopsis:

With more than 100 black-and-white illustrations, the fascinating story of George Washington comes to life, revealing the real man, not just the face on the $1 bill.

Synopsis:

The iconic Mount Rushmore displays the faces of four important US presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. Each man made his mark, carving his place in history. Now, the presidents unite once again with the four Who Was...? biographies included in this boxed set, each with eighty black-and-white illustrations, to reveal the stories of these monumental leaders.

Synopsis:

Born the eighth of seventeen children in Philadelphia, Betsy Ross lived in a time when the American colonies were yearning for independence from British rule. Ross worked as a seamstress and was eager to contribute to the cause, making tents and repairing uniforms when the colonies declared war. By 1779 she was filling cartridges for the Continental Army. Did she sew the first flag? Thats up for debate, but Who Was Betsy Ross? tells the story of a fierce patriot who certainly helped create the flag of a new nation.
