" Good introduction to each of the presidents- provides interesting facts to pull in students and a totally neat-o poster! " said.

" Love these books! Really informative and fun! " said.

" This is a great informational text of past presidents. Every fact that a child may need to know for a report, lesson, etc... will be in this book. The book contained presidents starting from George Washington to Bill Clinton. " said.

" This book is a great component of any classroom- no matter the grade. With information and pictures for each of the American presidents, the book serves to assist any lesson! We have been using it in my 5th grade class as an accompaniment to our Social Studies lessons to give the kids background information about the presidents during each time period we have studied. " said.

" This book has a nice collection of information on each of the U.S. Presidents in chronological order with several images of actual products, documents, campaign posters and memorabilia that match up well with the corresponding text. I would recommend having this book in any household or classroom for quick reference when curious about who was president during a time in history or for an addition resource on the topic. " said.

"4.5 stars


“You get what you pay for . . .”
So, the saying goes . . .

And, these days, the commoner gets less, it seems,
ensuring that money for profit,
always flows.

So, when a true bargain appears, how can it not delight?

And, this little presidential picture book simply is that:
a delight.

Although it appears to be a book for children / young adults, the NC 1080 Lexile level of Presidents testifies to its sophisticated prose and consequently reveals it to be a book
for all ages.

With a blurb-sized narrative for each president, author Barber also presents a historical journey through United States history via photographs and captions which accompany each presidential entry. Major events, too, receive individual blurb-sized narratives.

Although deeper explications of the darker sides of various administrations seem wanting, this little book nevertheless reviews the major events and controversies of each president within his time.

The accompanying visual CD provides .jpeg files for printing and viewing, though the images are duplicates from the hard copy text. Particularly wonderful, though, is the listing of additional resources and websites presented at the end.

This “modest” little tome, then, becomes a “quick” reference to the presidents, events, and
a surveying arc to United States history.

A delightful, quick read that spurs a desire for more.

"Title: Presidents
Series: Eyewitness Books
Author: James G. Barber
Reading Level: ZZ
Guided Reading: 9
Traits: Organization Using the details. The details create pictures in the reader’s mind and are plentiful from beginning to end. The writer’s knowledge about and/or experience with the topic is evident through the use of accurate details, credible information, and believable anecdote. The book has been organized by succession but also related different Presidents through out time. The book includes lots of biographical details.

Presidents is a nonfiction informational text that includes lots of pictures, cool organizing tricks and somehow is still text heavy. The reading level is high for elementary students but because there are somany tidbits that fit multiple reading levels that the frustrsation level remains low even for students in lower grades. I decided to include this book along with a few others of the eyewitness series because even though some of the reading is above level for many of our students, it remains popular. This text would also be a wonderful resource dor reserach because it includes lots of biographical detailds about the Presidents and their many accomplisshments over our history.
