If you have a younger reader, then this series is a gem. Done in a easy-to-understand format, the author does a excellent job of providing the right amount of information about each president. Done with both houmours illustrations and paintings, this book is thin enough it shouldn't put off reluctant readers. A great addition to anyone's library!
