About the Author:

Since the Academy Award–nominated Brooklyn Bridge aired in 1981, Ken Burns has gone on to direct and produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made. These include The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, The Civil War, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, and Baseball, among many others.
A father of four, Ken was inspired to write this book by his daughters, who, when they were young, enjoyed reciting the names of the presidents and would gleefully shout out “Grover Cleveland, again!” when they got to his second, nonconsecutive term.
Ken lives with his family in New Hampshire. Find out more about Ken and his films at kenburns.com or @KenBurns.

Gerald Kelley has illustrated several books for children, including My Name Is Bob by James Bowen and Garry Jenkins (a picture book prequel to the New York Times bestseller A Street Cat Named Bob) and M Is for Monster: A Fantastic Creatures Alphabet, by former U.S. Children’s Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis. Gerald lives in Colorado. You can see more of his work at geraldkelley.com.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–8—Almost 30 years ago, documentary filmmaker Burns told his daughters that he would one day write a book on the U.S. presidents for children: this volume fulfills that promise. Each of the 44 presidents receives a spread covering his time in office, including information on significant historical events and legislation, biographical data, a famous quote, and the president's official portrait. Soft, muted colors are used in the exquisite illustrations that highlight major events associated with each figure. Although there are no references or bibliography there are a glossary and listing of presidential birthplaces, libraries, and historical sites. Burns acknowledges troubling aspects of U.S. history, and while straightforward, the tone is upbeat. Burns emphasizes the personal abilities of each president and how he used those qualities to serve the nation. VERDICT Consider this superbly illustrated volume for U.S. history and biography collections.—Patricia Ann Owens, formerly at Illinois Eastern Community Colleges, Mt. Carmel
