When I think of the publisher Zondervan, I think about faith based books.  What I don’t think about is a book about our presidents, but funny enough, ZonderKidz has a fantastic book filled with information about all of our nations presidents.

Our Presidents Rock by Juliette Turner is an amazing compilation of facts and stories covering all of our presidents from Washington to Obama.  There are 316 pages just FILLED with facts, figures, and even some things you might not know about the men who have ran this country. 

I love this book.  Yes, it is for kids, but even I learned a few new things.  Between the random fact, break down of the states voting, mock newspapers from their times, and so much more, there wasn’t a page where I didn’t learn something new.  There is so much inside this book that it would take me 1000 words or more to tell you all.  But, I guess you don’t know the height of each president???  Thanks to this book, I now do.  The graphic at the back shows the heights of all the presidents.

I used this book to supplement the education that my children were receiving at their school, but this would make a great unit study for a home schooling family.  Or, if you have a little history buff in your house, they would definitely like this book. 

I think that every kid should read this, and feel that it would benefit children younger than the suggested age.  My kids are not in the suggested age and they learning things they never knew.  Learning from/about our past is the only way to move forward in the proper way.
