Release Date - January 2013

Simon Basher

Book Review by Bob Walch

Another in the excellent Basher series of books published by Kingfisher this little book offers information and fun facts about all the American presidents. There’s a full page cartoon illustration of each president along with another page that gives a brief, first person narrative where the president discusses some of the highs and lows of his term in office. You’ll also find some fun facts that set each man apart from the other office holders of this position. 
Type of Reading: U.S. history, biography, presidents.

Recommended Age: Seven years of age and up.

Little Kid Reaction: A friend gave this to his ten-year-old son to read and, for the most part, he enjoyed it.

Big Kid Reaction: I thought the format was excellent with facts, cartoon type art, and interesting tidbits about each president. 
Pros: Good content, the art draws in the child, and the first person approach in novel. 
Cons: Can not think of any!

Borrow or Buy: Buy. Excellent resource for educators and definitely for families home schooling their children.

Educational Themes: Good for background on U.S. presidents..
