School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-7-Two entries in yet another biographical series about U.S. presidents. Both authors follow similar, matter-of-fact writing styles in six chapters that discuss childhoods, upbringing, events that influenced their views, issues and accomplishments during their respective administrations, deaths, and legacies. The slightly dense but clear texts are broken up with photographs and pull quotes. Each book begins with the same eloquent foreword by Walter Cronkite on the U.S. presidency in general, its power both nationally and internationally, and how the Constitution's original definition of the role has been interpreted and challenged over the years. Additional purchases where needed.-Rita Soltan, Oakland University, Rochester, MI (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
