Product Description

Did you know that John Adams had to coax Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence? It's true. The shy Virginia statesman refused at first, but then went on to author one of our nation's most important and inspiring documents. The third U.S. president, Jefferson was also an architect, inventor, musician, farmer, and-what is certainly the most troubling aspect of his life-a slave owner. Finally, here's a biography for kids that unveils the many facets of this founding father's remarkable and complicated life. 112 pages, paperbacks. Ages 8-12.

    I purchased this book, along with 3 other "Who Was" books, and must admit that this one was disappointing. The book begins by making Jefferson out to not care or think of black people as the same because he had slaves. Consider the time era he lived in, everyone had slaves! Not everyone agreed with slavery at that time but many of them still had slaves and they treated their slaves very well. Just because he had slaves does not mean that he thought of them as less than human. Also the book mentions the fact that he did not enjoy his education from two pastors. Really? The book comes across like he did not enjoy being taught about God. Yet it is again very well documented the love that this man had for God and the love he had for learning more and more. Then when he went to William and Mary the book makes it sound as if what he enjoyed was being under such an incredible lawyer. No where does it mention that part of his daily routine was spent in morning and evening prayer. Next it states that he fathered children with one of his slaves. First of all why is that a main part of the book? My 8 year old does not need to read a book about anyone having relations with another person. That is something that honestly I would rather her find out once she is older and is at a age where she is learning about those kinds of things. Secondly this has in fact been proven false! The first son Thomas Woodson had absolutely no Jefferson DNA in him at all, secondly only one other child's family has consented to DNA testing so you cannot claim that ALL the children belonged to Jefferson when only two of the children's relatives consented to DNA testing. With the second child Eston, yes Jefferson DNA was found BUT the DNA on Jefferson's side was not gathered from one of Thomas Jefferson's sons because he died as a baby, but another Jefferson relative so Eston could actually have been the child of one of 26 Jefferson males. And if the author had done their research they would have seen that one Jefferson male did frequent Monticello quite often and hang out with the slaves while he was there and that was Jefferson's brother Randolph during the time when he was a widower. So to claim that the child belonged to Thomas Jefferson just because the mother was one of the slaves is a assumption based on what appears to be an attempt to smear him as a man instead of teaching of his accomplishments as a statesman.
