President’s Day

PresidentsHappy President’s Day!  In spite of the many snow days we’ve had this winter, my son has the day off so we’ll be spending some time together today.  Why?  Because we all need to take the time to recharge our batteries.

One of the ways that I like to do this is by reading great books.  With that in mind, why not pick up one of these books about a US President?

  • The Many Faces of George Washington by Carla Killough McClafferty shows us why we need current source materials to show the latest and greatest information that is available about these and other people.
  • What To Do About Alice by Barbara Kerley isn’t exactly about Teddy Roosevelt but it does give you a good idea what it was like to grow up in the Roosevelt household.
  • The House that George Built by Suzanne Slade gives us a inside look at building the White House and laying down the ground work for future presidents and it is done in a House That Jack Built rhyme.
  • You’re On Your Way Teddy Roosevelt by Judith St. George has always been a favorite because it introduces us to a side of this rough and tumble President that few people today remember.

If you have a favorite I didn’t include, be sure to tell the rest of us in the comments below.
