    One thought on “Our Presidents Rock!”

    1. This is an excellent book for older children, young adults, and grown adults to read and learn about our Presidents. It has lots of "eye appeal" as there are various charts, maps, pictures, and "Fun Facts". However, I completely detest the subject headings of "Why Should I Care?" and "What Has He done for Me Lately?" about each President. I understand the author was trying to be fun and appeal to the younger audience; however, in my personal opinion, both headings are just plain rude and inappro [...]

    4. I LOVED this book! I had it suggested to me from my mother and sister (both teachers at the same school) and they said that all of their students loved it! After I read it, I even smiled to share with my future students. This is a book directed towards younger elementary grades because it is not that challenging to read. It is more for students to learn different facts about our presidents than to focus on the vocabulary. There still are some words that are more complex but they are easy to find [...]

    5. Personal Reaction: To be honest I have never been one to find myself interested in our past presidents. However, while I was reading this book I could not have been more intrigued. I loved how the book included fun facts and quotes from the presidents and I could see my students really enjoying the book.Purpose/Use in Classroom:As a read aloud I would use this book for a history lesson introducing out past presidents. I would probably say a name of a president and ask my students if anyone knew [...]

    6. I simply cannot say enough good things about this book. As editor, I can say firsthand that Juliette takes her passion--she's the National Youth Director for Constituting Amercica--and she writes about history in an engaging, fun, and unique way. This book will appeal to kids, even though they're learning! Same with her first book, Our Constitution Rocks!
