Synopsis:

  • Did George Washington really chop down the cherry tree?
  • How was James Madison a father if he didn't have any children?
  • Where in the White House did William Howard Taft get stuck?

HAIL TO THE CHIEF! The commander in chief is the leader of our nation the president of the United States. Here's your chance to learn about the presidents' inaugurations and important political achievements, as well as their nicknames, hobbies and even what kind of foods they did (and did not) eat. Discover how life in the White House has changed, and the diverse ways the First Ladies helped America.

Best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis packs fan facts and coot quotes into his signature question-and-answer format. Detailed timelines make it easy to follow the major landmarks in American history. Presidential portraits and humorous illustrations make the design very inviting.

Who knows? After you learn so much about the presidents, maybe you'll want to run for office someday, too!

Review: Ready for some quirky facts about the presidents of the United States? Andrew Jackson had to sneak out of his own inauguration party and sleep in a hotel because his fans got so wild. Poker-playing Warren G. Harding once gambled away a set of White House china. Lyndon B. Johnson was an auto mechanic, a grape picker, and a high-school teacher before becoming president.

Kenneth C. Davis's tremendously popular Don't Know Much About... series takes on America's commanders in chief in this entertaining, often enlightening guide to the 43 presidents. Each president is allotted a page or three, which includes years in office, highlights of his time in power, and weird bits of trivia, including George Washington's propensity for brushing his horse's teeth every morning (although he himself didn't believe much in bathing) and spiffy dresser Chester Arthur's habit of changing his pants many times a day. A timeline runs along the bottom of most pages, describing major milestones in American history. It's fun and educational, how about that? (Ages 6 to 10) --Emilie Coulter
