From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-This book contains 23 letters sent to presidents (as early as Lincoln and up to Clinton) and 6 replies. The rest of the text presents historical background that explains the ideas and events mentioned in the letters, along with black-and-white file photos (of Hoovervilles, FDR, Truman, lunch counter sit-ins in the 1960s, and more) for variety and appeal. Greenberg also emphasizes the importance of writing to presidents and of voting. An appendix includes a list of presidential libraries, historic sites, and museums. While this is a worthwhile purchase for those interested in a look at letters to presidents over time, Dear Mr. President (Avon, 1993; o.p.), edited by Peggy Hackman and Don Oldenburg, includes hundreds of missives written to President Clinton in November 1992, and may have more appeal for readers who enjoy perusing actual correspondence.-Linda Beck, Indian Valley Public Library, Telford, PA
