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.

Editorial Reviews

 “Like all the best nonfiction, Provensen’s work should tempt readers to further research. Yet the book is also a treasure in itself; no matter how often one mines its informational gems, its riches are not depleted. The Buck Stops Here has all the feel of an immediate classic.”—Publishers Weekly

“Children will be pleased to make the acquaintance of the forty-one U. S. presidents in this large format book in which so much delights the eye and intellect that each page encourages encore perusals.”—SLJ

“This is a book to drive a young mind to a lifetime’s love affair with our country’s history.”—Christopher Buckley, Washington Post

    One of my students at my school gave me this book out of the media center and said "I didn't know President Obama was a slave" If you ever get a chance to view this book President Obama picture is TOTALLY different from the other Presidents. I have provided some example pictures below. The other presidents are in nice suits and looking very professional and presidential. The author ALICE PROVENSEN made President Obama in a white cotton shirt with no tie and some brown khaki pants and some shoes that look like some potato bags. It appears that he is sitting on the side of a porch. The first lady and his children are dressed in rags and they are standing in front of a garden with the white house to there backs. They look like they are on a slave plantation. This book points out ALL the negative about the US presidents. If this is a children book it needs to be positive not negative. This book has been pulled from our collection. We are not up lifting camouflaged negativity of author personal views.
