I learned more useful facts about the Presidents in the first three chapters of this book then I did in my entire career of US history in college.

Format: Paperback
An illustrated history of assassination seems like an odd topic for a children’s book. It seems even stranger when the topic becomes the assassination of the President of the United States. But, let’s face it: In the quest to explore the world around them, kids don’t come equipped with filters for social niceties. Topics that adults consider taboo, such as the death and murder – especially when it applies to the leader of one of the most power nations in the world – are often on a level playing field with the color wheel, multiplication tables, and the alphabet.

“A Children's Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination” is a book geared toward those difficult discussions. Author Bryan Young simplifies the topic in prose that explains and educates without talking down or being condescending to the audience. Focusing on each of the presidents who was either assassinated or had an attempt made against them, his prose introduces each leader and places them in both an understandable political and historical context. Shying away from a simple list of names and dates, he makes each history lesson engaging and entertaining.

Accompanying the text are illustrations by two artists. Erin Kubinek provides detailed imagery with a simple and comic flair that illustrates key points while complimenting and enhancing the unfolding stories. Some of the drawings are a little gruesome, but that only helps the audience to understand how messy the topic truly is. The second artist is Scout Young, the author’s daughter, who adds a presidential portrait from the point of view of the book’s intended audience.

Do you think you're well versed in the interesting details about the history of Presidential Assassination? Then I challenge you to read this book and NOT be surprised, informed and highly entertained. Although this book was written in a fashion that a 10 year old would find interesting, I myself found it a fascinating and concise read, full of appropriately quirky illustrations and amazing facts. Once again Bryan Young shows his skill and versatility as a writer. I've enjoyed his work in the past and am thrilled that with this title, I have something of his I can share with my kids.

I love this book. It was an interesting read even for an adult. I learned so many things I never knew about the subject! I fell in love with Scouts illustrations!

The fact that Bryan wrote the book for his daughter Scout makes it even better. You will love this book and so will your kids!

Quality publishing!
