From George Washington to George W. Bush, this newest entry in the popular Little Giant® Book series presents kids with loads of entertainment and education about the American presidency. Featuring fun illustrations throughout, it includes a list of all 43 presidents (in chronological and alphabetical order); a timeline of important events that occurred during each presidency; some firsts, lasts, and onlys associated with the presidents; popular nicknames; and fascinating facts about presidential families, finances, houses, favorite foods, sports and hobbies, monuments and memorials. There are interesting oddities—including many sightings of Lincoln’s ghost and the fact that Thomas Jefferson started the custom of a President shaking hands, rather than bowing, to guests—and lots of thought-provoking, memorable quotations.
