School Library Journal - 04/01/2015 K-Gr 2—Reminiscent of Scholastic's "True Books," these titles are ideal introductions to the most studied presidents. Each spread features an apt illustration with a few sentences about the subject, while the opposite page is designed to look like a bulletin board, with full-color maps, paintings, and drawings "attached" with pushpins. Despite the brevity, the sentences are informative, with not a word wasted. VERDICT Though these are sanitized biographies, they're suitable for the audience. - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 06/01/2015 This brief biography condenses the life of Franklin D. Roosevelt into 24 pages of facts and full-color photos. The first double-page spread summarizes the “tough times” America experienced while FDR was president. From there, each successive two-page topic takes readers from his childhood in Hyde Park, through highlights of his political career, to his death and remembrance. The text is very simple with four to six short sentences comprising each chapter. Unfamiliar words appear in bold and are defined in a glossary. Chapters contain one page of text with a captioned photo and a second page of illustration—often designed as a corkboard where additional photos and facts are “tacked.” Back matter includes a time line of Roosevelt’s life, a “Facts and Quotes” page, a brief glossary, an index, and a list of resources. This title joins seven other books about presidents in the A First Look at America’s Presidents series. For young children, this would serve as a resource for first reports. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
