No doubt we are facing some life changing events in history and National Geographic has, once again, put together a book that not only engages the brain, but teaches so much to readers about the presidents of the United States. What I love about this book is that it is stunning, filled with facts and photos that help kids learn about the history of the presidents and so much more. I love that my boys will be fully informed with up-to-date information and well researched facts, while being fully engrossed and engaged in the reading process. The book is laid out in a way where a reader can read bits and pieces or binge on the whole book. The quotes, facts and photos are interesting to kids and adults alike. I have learned so much myself by reading this book. A must for your school, classroom or home library.
