School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-Simple series titles that cover the lives and careers of two U.S. presidents. In both of them, single- and double-page illustrated chapters offer basic facts in easy-to-read language and large-print texts. The information is limited; for example, there is no mention of Lincoln's children. "Did You Know" sections present a few extra facts. Both books have black-and-white and full-color photographs and reproductions of the men and various sites. Strictly additional.-Gayle Modrall, Presbyterian School, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
