Excellent introduction for early ages,

This review is from: So You Want to Be President? (Caldecott Medal Book) (Hardcover)
Although this book is "rated" for grades 3-5, it's my kindergarten-aged child who loves it most. The book is an entertaining and informative intro to the variety of men who have served in the presidency. Small's illustrations are fun and imaginative, yet accurate enough that each president is easily recognizable. The major presidents are highlighted. We really like the chronological index at the end which, in two or three sentences, summarizes each man's presidential contributions. Emily chose this before it won its award, but it was already a winner in our house!
