Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Today's book recommendation is So You Want to Be President?, written by Judith St. George and illustrated by David Small. It's a collection of amusing and somewhat eccentric facts about U.S. Presidents. Oh, dear. My description sounds dry as all get-out, but the book is really entertaining, with topics like "Some Presidents knew how to dance and some didn't." (Woodrow Wilson is pictured dancing a wild jig.) Small's witty art contributes to the rollicking nature of this picture book.

That is a good book. I just got a paperback copy of it at a used book sale for 50 cents.

It's a lot of fun. History told in an entertaining way.
