Every president started out as a kid. From George Washington to Barack Obama, every person who grew up to become the most powerful man in America began life as a very short, mostly powerless little boy.
They got into fights, struggled with their schoolwork, pranked their teachers, and infuriated their parents just like any other kid.
Kid Presidents features 25 captivating true stories from the childhoods of United States presidents.
While other presidential biographies show how presidents clawed their way to the White House, this one will show how they made it through recess.
Each of these stories sheds some light on the kind of men and leaders these kid presidents grew up to be.
Stylized comic book-style illustrations and Wimpy Kid-esque doodle drawings will accompany each chapter.
An old Jesuit maxim says Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man.
Kid Presidents will illustrate the truth of that statement in a fun and entertaining visual language that any child can understand.
