President’s Day

cuban missile crisisHappy President’s Day!

Have you ever written anything about one of our Presidents?  One of my books, 12 Incredible Facts about the Cuban Missile Crisis, touches on Kennedy’s Presidency.  I say touches on because there was so much that he did in such a short period of time.  This is just a small part of it.

I would also love to write a series on America’s First Ladies.  I think it would make a great group of early readers.

There are some great children’s books out there about our Presidents. Why not pick one of them up?  In addition to my book, here are a few suggestions.

Presidents

  • 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 an 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.

  1. Did you know that George Washington made a second trip to Valley Forge. During the time that he was the chair of the Constitutional Convention, one of those attending that same convention convinced Washington to join him on a fishing trip. The fisherman’s trip took him to the area around Valley Forge. The former General got a chance to look at the old battlefield.
