Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Did you know John Quincy Adams used to skinny-dip in the Potomac? Herbert Hoover used to speak Chinese with his wife. And Gerald Ford had his name changed from Leslie Lynch King. InThe President's Stuck in the Bathtub,and#160;the lives of the presidents areand#160;served up as 43and#160;witty poems spanning virtually all of American history, and reminding us of the colorful men and women who have lived in the White House. With footnotes relating the facts behind the inspiration for each poem, and a section called, "Presidential Notes and Quotes" in the back, this book is one hilarious history lesson.

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 2008 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 its eye-catching two-color interior is fully illustrated with engravings, cartoons, and photographs.
