Little presidents have a great big job.

Now even the youngest patriots can learn about America’s presidential history with this bright and playful board book. Highlighting ten of the most memorable presidents—and featuring all forty-four on the last page—parents and presidents-in-training alike will love sharing this fun primer full of age-appropriate facts, leadership skills, and White House history.

{My thoughts} – This is a wonderfully written and illustrated book about some of the more popular United States Presidents. I enjoyed how it was written in a poem like form and had extra information telling about each president. Children in pre-school and kindergarten aren’t always aware of politics. They don’t usually know who the president is or how important the past presidents were in helping to shape our country.

This book is a great introduction for them to learn some of the presidents. It also helps them to learn one basic thing that each mentioned president had done that was considered important. The thing I like most about books like this is that it allows for open discussion between child and parent or child and another adult. The facts that are included can help the adult to help teach the child more about them. They can go to the library or google and find out more information that can help the child better understand what it is and what had taken place.

The other thing I like about this book is the illustrations. They look almost as if they are painted on the pages in my opinion. They are very calm and inviting. They are realistic enough that a child can distinguish the similarities to the actual presidents. I like how it was done in brighter tones because that too helps to make it more inviting and attention grabbing. This is a book that I will certainly be sharing with my future baby.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
