Today is President's Day and I would be remiss if I didn't suggest some books for kids that are perfect to help celebrate.
President's Day by Anne Rockwell illus Lizzy Rockwell~ New in paperback this is a school story that teaches children about the holiday in the guise of students putting on a play. A great tool for classrooms. Ages 4-8
The New Book of U. S. Presidents by Todd Davis & Marc Frey~The most up to date encyclopedia of presidents. It includes an American History Timeline & includes President Obama. Ages 9-12
So You Want to Be President? by Judith St. George Illus David Small~This is one of my
favorite books. It is such a fun way to learn history. The illustrations by David Small are priceless. Ages 9-12 (although I think younger kids would love it too!)
