Format: Board book
This Little President, written by Joan Holub, is an excellent board book perfect for any small child. This durable little book is easy for children to handle and is filled with engaging material. I see this book as a perfect fit from the birth to first grade (maybe even longer). The book is safe for small hands and will engage even early readers.

Joan Holub has filled each page with facts and language that flows with rhyme. She has picked several of our most favorite and exciting presidents to write about. These little kids will learn real history while reading about these presidents as there is only facts printed. No politics and no lore. 

Each page has been illustrated by Daniel Rode, who has created cute, yet simple, characters that greatly resemble the presidents. His artwork is as perfect a fit for little readers as the words that are written. The pages are not dripping with images so children can easily see and identify the pictures talked about in the writing.  --- Part of Review Posted on Lady Dabbler

Love this little board book! This is a rhyming book and covers 10 Presidents: Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, Grant, T.Roosevelt, F. Roosevelt, Kennedy, Reagan, and Obama. One page has a little rhyme about who that President is and then the other page has a large illustration with a fact about that President. The illustrations are bright and bold. So fun for any kid and parent, too!

THIS LITTLE PRESIDENT-A PRESIDENTIAL PRIMER by author Joan Holub and illustrations by Daniel Roode is a board book, about different presidents from over the centuries even up to our most recent president, Barack Obama. It’s a introductory to United States history with giving little bits about former presidents like Adam, Nixon, Washington, Jefferson, and more. The book is a great introduction to America’s Presidential history. The book goes over ten presidents and how they helped make a change and help the country grow.

In a rhyming fashion, the book takes you on journey through 10 presidents lives and the impact they have made. The first steps forward. The book is small enough for your child to hold and but written in a fashion that is easy to understand with its rhyming, catchy enough for your child to remember and keep their interest. The book is small enough for your child to hold in their own hands and first comfortably in yours. If it’s story time or a book of leisure. At the end you can see a full list of presidents from the first all the way up to present.

Baby’s first introduction to American history begins right here! Maybe it’s silly to get so excited about a board book, but I love this new generation of books for babies. There are retellings of ancient myths, explorations of new places, learning concepts through classic literature, and now this mini primer on American presidents.
I’m not going to lie, I probably learned more from this than I should admit to in writing. I’d never heard of Ulysses S. Grant before and I only recently learned that Franklin D. Roosevelt was crippled (don’t judge me, I’m Canadian!).
The thing I love about This Little President is the very brief introduction each president receives. The writing is easy to understand, upbeat, rhyming, and best of all, it’s educational. How the author managed to do all that with a board book is beyond me. As with any children’s book, the text is only half the equation. The other half comes from the illustrations. In this case, the pictures are exactly what I hoped for. They are colorful, bright, and give an age appropriate and delightful visual to the text.
Honestly, as a mother of a near-toddler, I have to say that this is one board book I’m very glad to have on the shelf! If you’re looking for an awesome gift for a baby shower or toddler’s birthday, books like this are always well received.

{My Thoughts} – This is a wonderfully written and illustrated book about some of the more popular United States Presidents. I enjoyed how it was written in a poem like form and had extra information telling about each president. Children in pre-school and kindergarten aren’t always aware of politics. They don’t usually know who the president is or how important the past presidents were in helping to shape our country.

This book is a great introduction for them to learn some of the presidents. It also helps them to learn one basic thing that each mentioned president had done that was considered important. The thing I like most about books like this is that it allows for open discussion between child and parent or child and another adult. The facts that are included can help the adult to help teach the child more about them. They can go to the library or google and find out more information that can help the child better understand what it is and what had taken place.

The other thing I like about this book is the illustrations. They look almost as if they are painted on the pages in my opinion. They are very calm and inviting. They are realistic enough that a child can distinguish the similarities to the actual presidents. I like how it was done in brighter tones because that too helps to make it more inviting and attention grabbing. This is a book that I will certainly be sharing with my future baby.
