Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the great leaders who have shaped American history. Packed with information about election campaigns, first families, groundbreaking speeches, and the creation of the US Constitution, this is the ultimate visual guide to America's highest office. See the Bill of Rights, Clinton's saxophone, and Washington's false teeth. Learn how Lincoln saved the Union and who wrote the Declaration of Independence. Discover the roles of the First Ladies, how presidents spend their spare time, and much, much more!
Rezension: An excellent large-format guide to the nation's highest office, from Washington to Clinton, this book is designed for browsing rather than cover-to-cover reading. Much more than just a reference book, Presidents is profusely illustrated with photographs, maps, political cartoons, and reproductions of famous paintings and documents--for example, Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware, and the Declaration of Independence. The text is broken up into simple blocks, many of them extended captions to the illustrations. Epoch-making figures like Lincoln and Roosevelt get a couple of double-page spreads each. Lesser presidents are covered two or three to a page (for example: Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, and Chester Arthur), but each one gets full dates and other basic information in a sidebar. (Ages 9 and older) --Richard Farr
