“The Buck Stops Here”

The Children's Book Review

Time flies. Now we have the 20th anniversary edition of THE BUCK STOPS HERE written and illustrated by Alice  Provensen (Penguin Young Readers Group, $18.99, over-sized 30 pages).     

Geared to ages 8-12, this is a winning intro to American presidents from Washington to Obama and all those in between. Forty four chiefs are featured, all are given their due with concise and clear historical and personal data.

The animated artwork is just wonderful to look and and each president is characterized by witty couplets:

Example.

Forty-two, Clinton, quick to please,

Veered left and right and back with ease.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
