I Wish I Knew That: U.S. Presidents: Cool Stuff You Need To Know

I Wish I Knew That: U.S. Presidents: Cool Stuff You Need To Know

Editors of Reader’s Digest (Author), Patricia Halbert (Editor)

Price: FREE

I chose this for my 5th grade granddaughter because she has to be a president for her history class in February and she was assigned Chester A. Arthur. I would recommend this book for middle school history because it makes the presidents come alive.

Here is a look at the fascinating profiles of each of the 43 presidents, including the names of their pets! Sidebars are filled with fun and unusual information about our leaders-such as who appears on stamps and money-and “At a Glance” boxes provide birth date, political party, and other vital information, including that:

  • Thomas Jefferson, our third president, spoke six languages, invented many things (the swivel chair and the pedometer, to name two), and designed and built not only Monticello (his rural home) but also the University of Virginia.
  • Theodore Roosevelt, was one of the nation’s great hunters, and the Smithsonian is filled with hundreds of specimens from his safari in Africa. He was also our first environmentalist president, setting aside nearly 200 million acres for national parks and wildlife refuges.

You’ll also find a section on “The First Ladies” – short takes on all the presidents’ wives. The book ends with a special feature that’s just in time for the 2012 election: how a president gets elected. From the first presidential election to recent recounts, this chapter clearly explains to a young audience how we choose the next leader of our country.

Includes over 100 whimsical illustrations!

If You Have A Hat. A Silly Rhyming Children's Picture Book

If You Have A Hat – A Silly Rhyming Children’s Picture Book

Gerald Hawksley (Author, Illustrator)

Price: FREE

The cute, colorful pictures are great even for children that can’t yet read – they can guess the rhyme from the picture, as well as try to find the bird in each picture. The easy to read rhymes are great for new readers. The “story” itself is cute and kept my daughter hooked. This book also has much better formatting than any other illustrated children’s Kindle book I have seen.

We found this a fun book, my son and I. The pictures are great and the hippo facts are interspersed with silliness that made my son and I laugh. This is great book for the Kindle because of the zoom and my son had a lot of fun with it.
