By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on January 27, 2003
Format: Library Binding
For young readers who want their biographies filled with lots of pictures, the Profiles of the Presidents series seeks to oblige. This look at Ulysses S. Grant by Jean Kinney Williams contains historical illustrations on every single page. However, the strength of this particular juvenile biography is that it provides not only the basic biographical details of Grant's life, but it also covers the significant aspects of his administrations as President, much more so than similar volumes I have read. Williams begins the book with Grant's transition from General to President and then looks at how his early successes and failures set the stage for becoming the general that President Lincoln finally found to lead the Union armies to victory in the Civil War. Each book in the Profiles of the Presidents series features a glossary, fast facts about the president, a parallel timeline of world and presidential events, resources to help young readers understand the president's life and times better, and an index. Consequently, this is an excellent first biography for younger kids to read as a way of finding out more about Ulysses S. Grant.
