Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881063932, Paperback)

Just what does a president do? In this companion to the award-winning The Flag We Love, young readers will discover the important part a president plays in our nation. Unique among children's books about the presidents, this concise and fact-filled volume is organized around the duties and roles of the president. Each two-page spread focuses on a president who helped to define one aspect of the presidency. Thomas Jefferson, for example, added to the territory of the United States with the Louisiana Purchase and added a power to the presidency not mentioned in the Constitution. Examples of other presidents in action follow, with every president mentioned at least once, giving a sense of the role they played in our history.
