9781426310904: Our Country's Presidents: All You Need to Know About the Presidents, From George Washington to Barack Obama

Ladies and Gentlemen: the next President of the United States will soon be included within the pages of one of our perennial favorites. National Geographic Children’s Books will publish this fully revised and updated edition of Our Country’s Presidents in time for the Inauguration of our 44th head of state—the first Presidents reference book on the market after the election.

This president will follow in the footsteps of 43 predecessors who have assumed America’s greatest responsibility: these men have faithfully executed their duties—they have signed treaties, addressed Congress, brokered peace, and waged war. Each has left his own indelible mark on the history of the United States and on the lives of the American people.

Find out why George Washington gave up his life as a Virginia planter to lead the nation; why John Taylor was deemed "His Accidency"; walk with the presidents through wars, depressions, civil rights movements, and the space race; romp with the Garfield children in a White House pillow fight; and mourn with a nation for John F. Kennedy.

This timely update will offer fascinating and comprehensive profiles of all the presidents, timelines of their administrations, historic images, and features on important aspects of their terms. A fresh cover design and informative insight about our new leader will make this volume stand apart from all other contenders, and confirm its place as the definitive family reference guide to the fascinating lives of our leaders past and present.

About the Author:

Ann Bausum is the daughter of a history professor, and she grew up with a love of American history and a passion for research. This award-winning author has published several books for National Geographic Books, including the acclaimed reference book, Our Country’s First Ladies. Another of her titles, Freedom Riders, was named a Sibert Honor Book. She lives in Beloit, WI.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-9-Children will find this beautifully illustrated resource both eye-catching and informative. The presidents' stories, presented in chronological order, include stunning full-page replicas of official portraits, a fact box of important historical details during the presidency, additional prints-both color and black and white, diagrams, etc. The conversational text is clearly written and full of interesting facts about the men's personal lives, humorous incidents, political backgrounds, records, struggles, battles, successes, what they are most famous for, events that occurred during their administrations, and memorable quotes. Interspersed throughout are spreads that provide additional information on the executive branch of government, White House traditions such as the Easter egg roll, the first ladies, Christmas tree lighting, the vice-presidency, voting rights, campaign strategies and party politics, conventions, etc. Great for reports or personal interest, this resource will fill the bill for students, and please them as well. A chart of presidential election results from 1789 to the present, a detailed index, resource guide with web and book materials, and an extensive bibliography complete the volume.-Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NEα(c) Copyright 2013.
