Kid Presidents: True Tales of Childhood from America’s Presidents
Quirk Books, 2014
Stories by David Stabler, Illustrations by Doogie Horner
I was lucky enough to pick up this nutsy little book at Book Expo and was waiting for it to come out before I posted about it. It’s here and it’s hilarious! Want to know about JFK hating his brother? Lyndon Johnson pulling pranks in class? Bill Clinton’s clutziness as a little fat boy? I’m telling you, your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and your mothers will love this book. And I think that learning funny stories about presidents when they were kids will help kids remember presidents, get involved in history. Just a peek at the cover will probably make you buy it.
