A very informative non-fiction book for intermediate age students on up. Martin Van Buren is not a well-known president, but an interest man who stood by what he thought was right even when he was the only one standing. I would highly recommend any teacher or parent to read this series of presidential history books to their class/children in order. Each does a wonderful job expanding on its predecessor.
