A Complete book about the Presidents

This is a great complete book on the latest version of this book with all the great presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, John F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and my favorite Barack Obama. I had this book at school, only the first pressing with George W. Bush in it. This is a much more up-to-date version. It also shows the 2008 election in it too. I really have enjoyed this book since I purchased it 10 days ago. It is a must have for children who need good education about the United States.

Our Countrys Presidents:Completely Revsed and Expanded

I got this book for my 6yr old son because of his interest in presidents and other important figures used on monies. We read about one every night before bed. In less than 2 months he can name all 43 presidents in random order, and also knows who is on each bill. also my 4yr old daughter can name all 43 by the pictures but it wont' be long. Can you do that, I can't. This is an excellant book to get them started on and to keep him interested in history. They are both excited about going to DC to see some of the monuments.

Great book!

This book on the Presidents is great for people of all ages. A great way to learn about our Presidents.


If ever a book was designed for opening the eyes of Jr. High students, as well as adults looking for a bit of a "refresher course," this is it. It presents our presidents in a quick, concise manner, that makes one want to delve further into their lives and times. Without being ponderous, and/or preachy, it is informative, while also being one heck of a pageturner. Get it. Read it. Share it. Tony Horowitz [...]
