Kid Presidents: True Tales of Childhood from America's Presidents by David Stabler

A young friend of mine, Graeson, highly recommended this book to me, and so I checked it out! Graeson is a very smart young man with a head full of interesting facts, and I will not be surprised if he becomes president one day. I will vote for him!

As the title says, this book goes into different stories about the presidents when they were kids.

Super interesting, especially the story about Franklin Roosevelt. His mom was very controlling and kept him on a strict and regimented schedule. After asking for a bit more independence, his parents allowed him one day to do whatever he wanted. He left the house and came back at night all dirty. He never told anyone what he did that day.

What makes this book really cool is the great illustrations by Doogie Horner. They are cartoonish and very funny and fitting.

There are two more books in this series, one about Kid Athletes, and another about Kid Artists
