Robin asked:

Is anyone aware of a book like this but written for a younger audience... say, 11 / 12 year olds?

Virginia Hoyt Hi, I was interested in your question and did some poking around online - found two possibilities for you. First is a book that seems to be written for adults, but in comic book form, and it is only 80-some pages:
The Fatal Bullet: The Assassination of President James A. Garfield, by Rick Geary.

And then, there is a 15-minute edition especially for children, download onto Kindle for 99 cents.
Author Jeannie Meekins, the title is James Garfield: The Professor President: A 15-Minute Biography.

I have not read either of these so cannot vouch for them, but found them on Amazon. Good luck, this topic should be a good addition into a child's education.
