Students love the Fandex!
Al Luna
It's very high quality and, although geared to children, is interesting and informative for adults, as well.

Format: Paperback
It was William Howard Taft who served as chief justice of the Supreme Court, Warren G. Harding who was president during the Teapot Dome Scandal, and Ulysses S. Grant who grew up with the nickname 'Useless'. All these facts, and more, are found in this Presidents: Fandex Family Field Guide.

This is a beautiful set and well-worth the 9.95 it sells for.

Each card has a beautiful die-cut portrait. The dates of the presidency are included as well as the Vice President's name and the First Lady's name. Every card has a surprisingly thorough bio. Of course, due to space constraints, not everything is listed here. However, many facts are included and those facts definitely whet one's appetite for more information.

Did you know that Franklin Pierce's classmate was Nathaniel Hawthorne? Or, that Herbert Hoover emerged from retirement in 1946 to distribute food supplies to the poor? I didn't know these facts and I didn't know that Rutherford B Hayes undertook the reform of the appalling conditions of mental hospitals (while governor).

In addition to the President cards, there are also cards that give a bit of data on each Vice President. So, in just a second or so, I can find out that Garret A Hobart (VP to McKinley) was a New Jersey lawyer and banker, that he was a 12-year member of the Republican National Committee, and that he died in office. There is also a clear, but small, portrait next to each VP synopsis.

All in all, this is a great set and fun to read. It's very high quality and, although geared to children, is interesting and informative for adults, as well.

Not much information in this non-book (actually a bunch of flash cards). I thought maybe my kid would like it, but couldn't get him to look at it more than twice. Then the next thing I knew, the whole "binding" had broken apart, and we had "President"cards all over the place. What a mess!

Format: Paperback
My kids find the Fandex format easy to use, and the information on them accessible. We have several, and with the elections going on this past year they used this one the most.
I like the fact that each president has a photo, as well as pertinent info: Date of birth and death, Number; Party represented; Vice President; First Lady's name. As well, there is a bio and some history for each one, including events leading up to and what happened while he was in office.
The only quibble I have about these decks is that sometimes when they're completely fanned out, the edges of the illustrations get caught up in each other, making it hard to close them properly. But other than that, they're cute, informative, and a nice format for kids.

I think this book is great, my 5 year old daughter now knows all of the presidents by name and number! In fact I am buying another one beacause she has worn the one we have out, but insists that she needs one.

My 7 yr old grandson is interested in presidents at the moment and these were perfect for him. They are well made and he will wear them out long before they fall apart. They are great!
