    I really enjoyed these quick snippets of each president. The author skimmed over much of the bad-sides of any given president and did quite well at focusing on the positive accomplishments of the presidents. There were a lot of interesting facts about presidents that I knew little to nothing about especially the 8 presidents preceding and the 8 following Abraham Lincoln. That was a tough century for the USA. I especially enjoyed reading it to my kids. It was a bit beyond them, but I'm confident I really enjoyed these quick snippets of each president.

    I read this as an ebook through my library and found many of the presidential tidbits interesting. I definitely learned a ton (even though its meant for juveniles) and bookmarked things to get more detail on later. I did notice several errors and organizational issues which makes me lower the stars. But in general, it’s really amazing how we have had presidents that have worked themselves up from being orphans, farmers, haberdashery shop owners, and also battled many obstacles (disability, death I read this as an ebook through my library and found many of the presidential tidbits interesting.

But in general, it’s really amazing how we have had presidents that have worked themselves up from being orphans, farmers, haberdashery shop owners, and also battled many obstacles (disability, deaths of children and wives, being shot). It really speaks to resiliency, drive, and the American dream. Anyone can be a president as long as you are male it seems.

    Book of the Presidents by Nancy J. Hajeski. This is an excellent non-fiction book about all of the Presidents with trivia, family stories, pictures, and highlights of their terms in office. While everyone knows of the recent Texans as far back as LBJ, I had forgotten that Eisenhower was also a Texan.

    A really good read. I like that the role of the president, the political system and other aspects of the presidency is explained. A good book for those wanting ground floor knowledge

    Too complex language. Not an easy flow of the story of each president. Three stars for the layout and stunning illustrations and photos.
