5.0 out of 5 stars A+++, March 3, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ulysses S. Grant: Eighteenth President 1869-1877 (Getting to Know the U.S. Presidents) (Paperback)
In Venezia's skillful hands, even the most obscure people (in the minds of today's elementary school set) become quite interesting. All of Venezia's books are wonderful, and this one about Ulysses S. Grant is no exception.

Venezia uses a mix of lively text, interesting period art and photographs, and humorous graphic art (think comic strip) to tell the rather fascinating story of this famous American president, Civil War general, and respected author.

Venezia handles Grant's drinking issue sensitively, and does a great job of helping kids understand how Grant could make such good decisions as a general, and such dubious ones (mainly hiring his crooked friends) as a president.

All in all, my kids all came away with new appreciation and respect for U.S. Grant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ulysses S. Grant:Eighteenth President 1869-1877, December 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this as a Christmas gift for a young little guy who is named after Pres. Grant b/c his dad is a military officer & an avid history buff. Looking through the book, I honestly think he will love it as will his dad as he has been collecting material relating to Pres. Grant. I received this book in a timely manner & it was in good condition as well as informative. Would use this seller again.
