United States

Our Leaders

 

Presidents’ Day is a little less than a month away. So, the question is how much do you really know about the men who have lead our Nation? What makes a leader? Do you want to learn more?

Stop!...before you answer that question, let me tell you that the books I have chosen are not like text books. Luckily, they not only include facts, but they also have a visual story to tell through illustrations. Children, especially ones who are visual learners, use these clues to help link information about each President with the historical events that took place during his presidency.
