Booklist Review

This encyclopedia is organized chronologically, beginning in 1789 with George Washington and ending in 1994 with President Bill Clinton. Entries vary from one page for William Henry Harrison to 12 for FDR, reflecting the length of the president's term. If students want to ascertain who was president during a particular year, they need only turn to the page for that year and find the name. The book incorporates the life of each president as part of the larger story of the U.S. Major events that occurred during each president's tenure are noted, as well as important people from that particular period of time. Each entry includes the president's birth date and place, death, party, vice president, family-member names, and nickname. A four-page chart of presidential election results is found at the end of the book. It includes the president and vice president, term, election year, candidates, popular and electoral votes, and the president's birthplace. Throughout the book certain words are highlighted in red, indicating that the subject is discussed in greater detail in another section of the book. Using the subject index at the end of the book, a student can find the entry for the more detailed discussion, which is also highlighted. Black-and-white photographs of events and people, political cartoons, artifacts reflecting the period in history, as well as maps detailing the growth of our country can be found throughout the book. This is an attractive, inexpensive resource for elementary school students, providing concise information in an easy-to-read format. It is recommended for the children's section of public libraries and elementary school media centers that lack the financial resources to buy individual books on each president. (Reviewed July 1994)


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4 Up‘This revision of the 1994 volume presents new information and a plethora of pertinent changes. This user-friendly resource, which lucidly examines the political and personal lives of the U.S. Presidents, and the headlines, historical movements, and personalities, etc., that shaped their administrations, has a broader scope. Coverage begins with George Washington and ends with the commencement of Bill Clinton's second term. U.S. and international events that left an indelible impression on the mid-1990s, such as the Oklahoma City bombing, the war in Bosnia, and the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, are vividly documented. Rubel also addresses the political issues, policies, and personalities that shaped the 1996 Presidential campaign and provides the results of this election. An engagingly written section presents an overview of the history of the White House. Charts, tables, and maps are updated, and the index has been expanded. Small black-and-white photos and reproductions add interest. A handsome new cover design completes the package.‘Hillary Jan Donitz-Goldstein, New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
