The kids who grew up to be president were like a lot of other children. Some struggled with schoolwork and got into fights; others pranked their teachers and infuriated their parents. William Howard Taft was forced to take dance lessons. Gerald Ford struggled with dyslexia. Teddy Roosevelt had a bedroom “museum” full of dead animals. Laugh-out-loud funny and packed with cool facts, it’s the perfect read for all young future leaders of the free world.
Why we like it: Wonderful back stories of our nation’s leaders. This book makes history fun! It is brimming with anecdotes for each America presidents. The book is arranged in three major parts: After-School Activities, Fantastic Journeys, and It’s Not Easy Growing Up and includes additional facts about each president, a list for further reading, and an index. Stories are complemented with color cartoon illustrations on every page. Readers will identify with the traumas and silliness of each of our president’s boyhood adventures.
