9780689868801: What Presidents Are Made Of

PRESIDENTS are made of BIG EATERS...and so much more!
You get a portrait of former U. S. president Jimmy Carter, who builds houses for the homeless.
See the presidents as never before -- made out of objects! Using everything from blue jeans to boxing gloves, Hanoch Piven "builds" the characters of our leaders. And with revealing anecdotes to go along with Piven's creations, you'll never forget what makes up George (Washington), George (Bush), or anyone else in between.

About the Author:

Hanoch Piven is the acclaimed creator of Let’s Make Faces, What Presidents Are Made Of, What Athletes Are Made Of, and What Cats Are Made Of, among other books for children. His incisive portraits have been published in the United States in such major magazines as Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Entertainment Weekly, and The New York Times. He lives with his wife and children in Israel. Visit him at PivenWorld.com.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6–Beginning with its wordplay title, this book exhibits Piven's flair for creativity and whimsy. Focusing on 17 U.S. presidents, each single- or double-page entry begins with the same phrase ("Presidents are made of..."), includes an interesting anecdote showing the human side of that individual, and presents a collage caricature made of inventive bits of realia that extend the metaphors suggested in the text. For example, George Washington is "...made of good deeds." The narrative recounts how he helped extinguish a neighborhood fire at age 67. His "portrait" has eyes made of small resin-coated American flags that reflect enough light to make them twinkle. Thomas Jefferson is made of "comfortable shoes"; Andrew Jackson, "hot tempers"; Theodore Roosevelt, "endless energy"; and Bill Clinton, "enthusiasm." The last spread has official portraits of all the presidents, their birth and death dates, and their years in office. In the introduction, readers are invited to compare the "object portraits" with the realistic images and to fashion collages of their own. Children will be fascinated by the imaginative, humorous artwork and will appreciate the anecdotes that allow them to see the "stuff" that presidents are made of. This book should be particularly popular at election time, but will be enjoyed any time, singly or in groups.–Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ
