Kid Presidents tells all about the president’s lives when they were kids. Well, there aren’t specifically stories about all of the President’s in the book, but there is at least one mention of each of them with some sort of factoid. There are stories about how Grant was told by his father to trade for a horse – that he could spend up to $25 but try to get it for $20 but he ended up telling the guy he was getting the horse from he was allowed to spend up to $25 – guess how much the horse cost? Yup. $25. George Washington never said “I cannot tell a lie.” Teddy Roosevelt made his own museum. Sometimes bad kids turn out to be good presidents. JFK once changed a “No Dogs Allowed” sign to a “No Hot Dogs Allowed” sign.
A great book geared towards Children to teach them more about our President’s and maybe help them realize that they are not all that different from themselves and that maybe they too can one day be President of the United States.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
