Product Description:

This book holds a wealth of presidential info, albeit sometimes tongue-in-cheek (imagine large sunglasses on each president). From the country's foundation to 2013, each presidency is explained in bite-sized pieces and interesting sections: The Bottom Line; What Was He Thinking?; Why Should I Care?; Breakin' It Down; Previous Career; First Couple; Presidency; and What Has he Done for me Lately?. Other facts are highlighted in side bars, charts, graphs and full-color illustrations, and a special Presidential Times newspaper overview section. Important themes from each presidency are stressed so you can work through the text and easily compare. How did each president view the constitution? What were themes in his platform speech? I can see this being a handy, go-to, overview reference for your teens as you work through American history. Quite an engaging book that will appeal to even your non-history buffs. I love that this book shows how past actions and decisions affect our present, with the implication that our present will affect the future.

Did You Know

John Quincy Adams owned a pet alligator? Ulysses S. Grant received a ticket for riding his horse too fast down the streets of Washington, D.C.? Gerald R. Ford briefly worked as a fashion model?

You are invited on a totally unique journey through presidential history with Juliette Turner, the National Youth Director of Constituting America. Through fun cartoons, quotes, great graphics, and Juliette's quirky sense of humor, you'll discover tons of fun new facts about the presidents of the United States and the role of the executive branch. These aren't just a bunch of old men in suits! Many of them were ordinary people like you who overcame trials in order to become America's leader, and all of them entered the political arena with the goal of protecting the country they loved. Written for kids by a kid, Juliette's passion and excitement breathes new life into American history and the role of one of the most powerful positions in the world.
