Rutherford B., Who Was He?: Poems about Our Presidents


Rutherford B., Who Was He?: Poems about Our Presidents Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty-three men with forty-three passions, but with one thing in common: a presidential place in America's history.

With her gift for unforgettable rhythm and innovative rhyme, Marilyn Singer brings the presidents of the United States to life-from Washington to Obama-and contextualizes them in their time. Illustrations by John Hendrix are full of hilarious wit and refined exuberance, and backmatter enriches the experience with short biographies, quotes by each president, and more.
