This book (and many others like it) have been a great find for my family. I am homeschooling a second-grader and these books have been the key to getting him interested in reading, and have become the foundation of our reading curriculum this year. Since we are studying American history, they are relevant, fun, and are about topics to which he can relate. His interest in both reading and history has increased, and he can't wait to get to the next book. At this point level 3 readers are easy for him, level 4 readers are just hard enough to be a challenge (but not too much) and level 5 readers will be tackled in the spring.

Thomas Jefferson's Feast is great because you get to know the everyday T.J. and things that he liked. We found out that he was responsible for introducing things to this continent that we really love such as tomatoes and macaroni and cheese. My son loved the story.

This book is great paired up with "A Prairie Dog for the President" about the Lewis and Clark expedition.

This is a wonderful children's book about our third president (US). It provides a fun story about how he loved to read and write and eat! He brought foods back from France that weren't popular here and made them famous. Jefferson got people to finally try love apples or tomatos, thought to be poisonous here in the US, but eaten often in France.

All of the books in this series take one personality trait of a famous person and talk about it. The trait they chose for Jefferson was that he liked to eat. The fact that the "feast" happened over several parties as opposed to one meal is not an important enough piece of "fiction" to justify saying that the book is bad. The book does not talk about Slavery. That is covered in the book about Harriett Tubman, which is also a very good book. This is a Step Into Reading book, not a complete history of Thomas Jefferson book. Although the reading level is 2nd - 4th grade, the content is PreK - 1st.

I enjoyed this book with my son, who has learning disabilities and needs books written in a simple style. The great thing about this book is that it gives a high-interest historical story that teaches on a number of levels. My son still talks about the "love apples"; it seemed to spark his interest in history as well as the story. I am glad for these types of books.

My 6 year old daughter LOVES stories about historical people and happenings. It is shockingly difficult to find books that are suitable for her age and not about sports figures. This book is not a great literary classic, but it is wonderful because it is smartly written with facts and stories about Thomas Jefferson that are interesting and informative. Not only did my daughter love this book, but I learned quite a bit from it as well.

I go to the Step into Reading books first when purchasing non-fiction books for my classroom library. This book might be at the top of my list for enjoyable, informational text. This is a "good fit" book for most of my 1st grade readers. This book is filled with very interesting facts about our 3rd president.
