Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Entertaining, up-to-the minute, and easy-to-use, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents features a short, lively biography of every president from George Washington through the winner of the 2012 presidential election, plus a chapter on Election 2000--the "year of the chad." It includes concise descriptions of the major events, issues, and achievements of each administration, and is fully illustrated in black and white with engravings, cartoons, and photographs.  In-print and updated after every presidential election since 1968, it's an easy-to-use, affordable alternative to hardcover home reference books like National Geographic's Our Country's Presidents at $24.95. An invaluable resource that the whole family will turn to again and again, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents is American history in a nutshell.

Synopsis:

Entertaining, up-to-the-minute, and easy to use, The Look-It-Up Book of Presidents features a short, lively biography of every president from George Washington through the winner of the 2000 presidential election. It provides concise descriptions of the major events, issues, and achievements of each administration and is excitingly illustrated with engravings, cartoons, and photographs (including a picture of the original teddy bears given to Teddy Roosevelt).

Synopsis:

A newly revised edition of a backlist favorite! This inexpensive, high-quality reference book that children have turned to for more than 20 years now contains a completely revised chapter on Bill Clinton, plus a brand-new chapter on the winner of the 2000 presidential election! Middle-graders can find out the answers to such questions as: When and why was the White House set on fire? Which president appears on the $5,000 bill? And who served only one month in office? All 43 presidents are arranged chronologically with short biographical sketches, exciting you-are-there action photos, cartoons, and campaign memorabilia. It's American history in a nutshell.
