They were kids, adventurers, journalists, prospectors, musicians, TV hosts, worked on river boats, worked the land, and more! In this fascinating overview of presidential history, we get a look at the presidents before they were presidents and the many things that they have had in common as well as what made them unique. Who knows who today just might have the makings of the next president? Your young candidates will be fascinated by this look at the history and journey that our presidents took before becoming our nation’s leader. Ages 4-8. 40pp.
