From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up–President John F. Kennedy's assassination shocked and saddened the entire nation and the world. Political journalist Bill O'Reilly explores the events in both Kennedy and his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald's lives in the years leading up to that fateful day. This juvenile version (2013) of his adult title, Killing Kennedy (2012, both Holt), is told in an alternating time line that follows both men's lives in the years preceding the devastating event in Dallas. By juxtaposing the lives of both men, O'Reilly compares and contrasts their backgrounds and beliefs. While O'Reilly's admiration of Kennedy is apparent, this slight bias is well balanced with many facts that will lead listeners to develop a more well-rounded view of the 35th president. Kennedy's lack of interest in politics while growing up, the injuries he incurred while serving in the military during World War II, and the choices he made during the Cold War and Vietnam War are all detailed in an easy-to-understand manner. Narrator Edward Herrmann does a wonderful job of pacing through the audiobook, presenting the facts as if telling a story. Combined with the relative short length of the book, Herrmann's narration makes this an excellent choice for introducing young learners to Kennedy's assassination.–Jessica Miller, West Springfield Public Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2013.

In addition, The O'Reilly Factor for Kids outsold all other children's non-fiction titles in 2005. All in all, more than 5 million copies of Bill's books are in circulation. He holds master's degrees from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and Boston University. Asked about his proudest professional achievement Bill has said, "The millions of dollars we are able to give to charity."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This riveting account of the horrific assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy is adapted from Bill O'Reilly's bestselling "Killing Kennedy." This fascinating, illustrated edition is designed for age 10 and over. The author chronicles a valuable, historical narrative of the tragedy that not only changed my generation, but the entire nation. Bill O'Reilly presents information on the shocking events leading to the assassination, the political crisis JFK was facing, and life of JFK and his family in the public eye. In addition, the author describes an angry drifter, known as Lee Harvey Oswald, who was taken into police custody while accused of the most notorious crime of the twentieth century. The prime suspect escapes, is captured, then shot dead, and I remember quite well watching the TV with my dad as Oswald fell to the ground. This horrifying event repeated itself on the News, as much as the chaos of the scene of JFK in the car, after the shooting. One of the worst memories planted in my mind was JFK's funeral, with his wife and two very young helpless children as they stood in silence, while the entire country mourned. One of my best memories of when JFK took office was looking forward to his brother visiting my school, and always viewing the passion JFK had for his children. Bill O'Reilly describes in detail a gripping, thrilling story of a day that marked history as it shed darkness into the world. In conclusion, he also highlights a brave leader, a hero, and a President who wanted to make the world a better place to live in. My dad never forgot Pearl Harbor, my daughters will never forget 9/11 and I remember November 22, 1963, as if it were yesterday.Read more ›

This is written for young people, but a senior I enjoyed it very much. Wonderful presentation of the history and the pictures are excellent. O'Reilly's ability to present the story in such an interesting way makes reading history a pleasure.

Purchased for a 10-year old and he loved it. Finished the book in just two days which says a lot. It has to be great to hold the attention of a child who would rather go fishing than anything else!

Format: Hardcover
While searching for a summer reading book I was looking for something simple and informative at the same time. I also wanted a book that had the topic of U.S history, so when I found this book I was excited to find out what it had in store for me. I would recommend this book to other readers because it takes a few very long and complicated topics such as the Cold War, Cuban Missile Crisis and the Assassination of Kennedy and puts it into a more simple easier to understand context . This book met my expectations because it was fun to read, essentially when the author tells both sides of event, from the perspective of Lee Harvey Oswald and also the perspective of John Kennedy himself. This book made history fun and relatable
so it didn't feel like I was learning as I was reading.

Much less than I expected. Not much more than reading a newspaper article. Waste of time. No need to buy.

Loved everyone of Bill O'Reilly's and martin Dugards books. I suggest everyone read these books. With Lincoln I felt like I was in the room with him when he was dying. All the other Killing Books I couldn't put down and I learned a lot of history. I bought all the childrens versions for my grandaughter as I feel our scholl system no longer teachers our history properly. Just bout the Patton Movie that I saw years ago but this time around I should be able to get a better understanding af the Great General Patton after reading Bill and Martin's books. Great reading.

Even though the same text as killing Kennedy, this book is much more appealing because of the graphics and pictures. O'Reilly promotes the book as being for children, but is in fact more appealing to all ages than a book without pictures. O'Reilly should
put out a picture version of killing Lincoln. Seeing the pictures brings the story to life.
