Product Description

With a short couplet for each president that succinctly weaves together the stories of 44 United States presidents, this deceptively simple book manages to work in the major events that occurred during the entire history of the US. Intricate illustrations tell the story of each presidency, with labels, dates, and symbols seamlessly integrated each scene. Filled with the fascinating details, The Buck Stops Here provides a personal look at the presidents that, due to the rhyming text, makes them exceptionally easy to remember. End notes in the back. Updated through Obama. Hardcover with dust jacket. Reinforced binding. Ages 8 & up. 20th anniversary edition.
