Product Info

This new version from the Caldecott-winning classic by illustrator David Small and author Judith St. Perfect for this election year--and every year! There are now 3 Georges in the catalog of presidential names, a Bush alongside the presidential family tree, plus a new face on the endpaper portraiture. Hilariously illustrated by Small, this celebration by St. George shows us the foibles, quirks and humanity of forty-two guys who have risen to 1 from a single of the most powerful positions inside the world. George is updated with present facts and new illustrations to incorporate our forty-second president, George W. Bush.

Tired of books about the presidency that present themselves as history books? George--along with Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator David Small--has created a book relating to the presidency that's serious fun. The fundamental theme is the reality that any person can be president: a fat man (William Howard Taft) or perhaps a tiny man (James Madison) , a relative youngster (Teddy Roosevelt at 42) or oldster (Ronald Reagan at 69 ). (Ages 8 and older) --Richard Farr Presidential hobbies, sports, virtues, and vices all get a tongue-in-cheek airing, perfectly matched by Small's political-cartoon style of caricature painting. There's a factual addendum at the back giving all of the dates and names, having a one-line bio for each single past-president. Ironically, that message makes the presidency far more interesting (and appealing) than it seems in a quantity of the a lot a lot much more traditional books. Author Judith St. It's fun, however the underlying objective is clearly serious: to remind kids that the American presidents have been a motley group of individuals, not a row of marble busts.
