In my opinion, this is a good book. I liked this book for multiple reasons. First, I liked how the book used cartoon drawings along with actual photographs. The cartoons made the book more approachable for children, and the photographs were useful in showing actual pictures like family photos. The beginning of each chapter had a cartoon drawing that made it seem more interesting to read. For example, one chapter was called “Becoming President”, and there was a drawing of colorful people shaking hands with funny looking faces. There were also photographs throughout the chapter in black and white. One photograph was a picture of Jimmy Carter talking to people in their cars with the caption, “Carter campaigns to be governor of Georgia”. Second, I liked how the book had extra textual features. One chapter in the book talk about Jimmy Carter’s life growing up which includes how he grew up during the time of segregation. Along with this, there is an extra paragraph in a different color than the text that talks about what segregation is. This gives the reader more information about the topic so they can fully grasp and understand the text. There are also other textual features that I mentioned before such as captions. I think the main idea of this book is to show its audience who Jimmy Carter was, how he became president, and what he did during his presidency. ( )
