Summary "A treasury of American Presidents by historian Ken Burns"-- Provided by publisher.
How many children have said at some point that they want to grow up to be president? Well, this book will show them it really is possible. It doesn't matter if you weigh as much as William Howard Taft (332 pounds) or as little as James Madison (100 pounds); are as tall as Abraham Lincoln, who was 6'4", or as short as Madison (again!), who was 5'4"; are born really rich like George Washington or really poor like Ulysses S. Grant; whether you're a Unitarian like Millard Fillmore or a Catholic like John F. Kennedy; if you have a learning difference like Woodrow Wilson or a physical disability like Franklin D. Roosevelt. Thankfully, you can now be elected president regardless of your race or skin color. And it certainly doesn't matter whether you're a man or a women (even though there hasn't been a woman president ... yet). Even you could grow up to be president!
