With the primary elections going on, I realized that Charis knows very little about who have been the Presidents of the United States. I want my children to have a better knowledge of history than I do. In high school, my history teacher, from 10th-12th grade, had us write down outlines verbatim. The day before testing us, he would give us a "review" with all the test questions and answers. I'd regurgitate the answers on paper and immediately forget what I learned. I wanted a book that is simple for Charis to understand, and yet memorable.
U.S. Presidents: The Oval Office All-Stars includes all 44 Presidents of the United States. Each President is given one page with 6 bulleted facts and a 2 paragraphs written in first person. Each President has a cartoon depiction on the opposite page. I plan on reading a different President each school day to my daughter, enough to help introduce her to the names.
