Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590493663, Hardcover)

Great for homework, this nice effort includes a couple of large pages on each United States president, headlines from his administration, neat trivia (Herbert Hoover was the first president to have an asteroid named for him. Abe Lincoln was the first to wear a beard in office), a context in popular culture from Johnny Appleseed to virtual reality, and plenty of solid history in clear English. It's a wonderful jumping-off place for an emerging historian or a child curious about who is that guy on the U.S. dime. (For ages 10-11 and up and a great reference for the whole family)
