Basher History: US Presidents
Eager to know factoids and get personal with this nation’s presidential leaders? Pick up this jampacked book of presidential info and caricatures. This book has color coordinated the presidents into two categories, the 18th-19th century presidents, and the 20th-21st century presidents ending at the Biden administration. Each president is depicted with icons that can describe them and their term in office. Readers will find that there is partisan slant when depicting certain presidents. The book is written to bring some levity to tough situations like the Clinton, or Harding, and other administrations. This would make an excellent addition to a middle school government curriculum or for interested elementary students. Pgs. 112 | pb ~Rebecca
