BEFORE BARACK, HILLARY & JOHN MCCAIN
The history of the presidents has never been so fascinating as it is in SO YOU WANT TO BE PRESIDENT by Judith St. George. Not only will you learn which past presidents had pets or facial hair, you will read about Andrew Jackson, who worked as a tailor or Ronald Reagan, the movie star, before they became president. It also talks about the perks of being president, just in case you plan on being president some day. From good to bad, you'll learn all about the presidential history of the United States. The illustrations are hilarious and do more than highlight the stories. This is definitely a book to inspire readers to look further into different presidents and their interesting lives. For 2nd grade and up.
