Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Katz’s nod to presidential foibles arrives just in time for Presidents’ Day and the upcoming election cycle. In humorous yet informative rhymes, she explains that Washington never slept in the White House, John Quincy Adams often skinny-dipped in the Potomac, Herbert Hoover and his wife avoided eavesdroppers by conversing in Chinese, and William Howard Taft (at 350 pounds) required a special bathtub. Although admittedly trivial, these sorts of details are just the kind to pique young readers’ interests. The poems exhibit wide diversity (concrete, alliterative, free verse, quatrains), and each is accompanied by a footnote explaining the verse’s context and a cartoon-style illustration. Neubecker’s artwork, rendered in India ink with digital color, is full of interesting details; the title spread, for example, features an enormous, hairy Taft being extricated by four determined aides. Appended with a list of presidential notes and quotes, this is sure to be popular; pair with Kathleen Krull’s Lives of the Presidents (1998) or Judith St. George’s So You Want to Be President? (2000). Grades 2-5. --Kay Weisman

Absolutely delightful and factual silliness! A book like this takes the "boring" out of learning about the Presidents! We no longer see Presidents as stuffy , boring old men! There were gales of laughter as I read even the first few poems to them! I must admit I also had quite a few chuckles!

We are studying the US Presidents this year, and I found this book at the library. It is so cleverly written and entertainingly illustrated, that I must have a copy for our own to read over and over. There is a poem for each President; they are written in chronological order; they are all based on true stories, which are written in detail at the bottom of each poem. My sons (ages 10 and 8) giggled through the whole book!

This was a gift for our 9 year old grandson who is fascinated by the Presidents. He enjoyed this book very much. It can also be enjoyed by adults.

My boys, ages 5 and 9, love this book. Great tool for teaching US history. They did not realize they were learning.
