Grade 3-6–Following a brief history of the presidency and a description of the three branches of government, the presidents are profiled in chronological order. Attention is paid to the subject's early life, tenure in office, and life thereafter. Part three consists of a thumbnail look at each leader: birth, death, home, political party, vice president, and wife and children. The somewhat breezy text, with few details, is printed on a buff-colored background. Each article is accompanied by a portrait, photo, or reproduction of something related to that presidency and a Did You Know? box. A campaign button, banner, or similar realia are often included. Photos, where possible, are in color. A time line in dark blue at the bottom of the page lists three dates of significance during each administration. Two pages are devoted to Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Truman, and Clinton. Everyone else gets a page. An article about the First Ladies, only 12 of whom are mentioned; a short article about and a cutaway diagram of the White House; postcard images of six other Washington, DC, landmarks; and a page of trivia are also included. Better suited to pleasure reading than for reports, this up-to-date volume is a solid addition to most collections.–Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
