Annotation Veteran biography writer for children Kathleen Krull shares the more personal, less public side of the American presidents, dispelling myths (George Washington's supposedly wooden teeth), sharing little-known facts (Andrew Johnson made his own suits), and disclosing odd quirks such as John F. Kennedy's ability to bark like a seal. With humorous illustrations.
Editors Note Every U.S. president is the focus of public scrutiny, but how well do we know these men? What kind of fathers do presidents make? Husbands? Neighbors? Other books focus on the historical achievements of those who have occupied our country's highest office; Lives of the Presidents looks instead at their bad habits, silly nicknames, and strange pets. Every president--from George Washington to Bill Clinton--is included, with an emphasis on those who have had the greatest impact on history. Discover their high points, low points, and the times in between. In this stunning addition to their acclaimed series, Kathleen Krull and Kathryn Hewitt take us beyond politics and photo opportunities, revealing the entertaining, complex, and very real lives of the presidents.|
