Don't Know Much About the Presidents Paperback – January 27, 2009
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Ready for some quirky facts about the presidents of the United States? Andrew Jackson had to sneak out of his own inauguration party and sleep in a hotel because his fans got so wild. Poker-playing Warren G. Harding once gambled away a set of White House china. Lyndon B. Johnson was an auto mechanic, a grape picker, and a high-school teacher before becoming president.
Kenneth C. Davis's tremendously popular Don't Know Much About... series takes on America's commanders in chief in this entertaining, often enlightening guide to the 43 presidents. Each president is allotted a page or three, which includes years in office, highlights of his time in power, and weird bits of trivia, including George Washington's propensity for brushing his horse's teeth every morning (although he himself didn't believe much in bathing) and spiffy dresser Chester Arthur's habit of changing his pants many times a day. A timeline runs along the bottom of most pages, describing major milestones in American history. It's fun and educational, how about that? (Ages 6 to 10) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Publishers Weekly
Kenneth C. Davis once again uses a Q&A format, this time detailing the lives of the 43 men who have led the nation, in Don't Know Much About the Presidents, illus. by Pedro Martin. Alongside amusing stories (e.g., "By the time Washington became president, he had only one tooth of his own"), each section also includes each president's term, a timeline of major events and opens with a presidential quote.

the presidents and I love to study presidents. My 14 year
old sister needed help with her report on Theodore Roosevelt and
Franklin D. Roosevelt and she asked me because she knew I would
know some things! I have checked "Don't know much about the
Presidents" out of the library and since I have to take it back,
my dad said he would buy me my own copy to keep!
