St. George’s romp through history, pointing out the similarities and peccadilloes of our famous forefathers, is absorbing and entertaining, offering little bits of presidential trivia. Touching subjects pertinent to kids, like presidential pets, homework, and the negatives and positives of the job, St. George’s text is full of fascinating detail. Next, add an excellent score--jaunty, bouncy versions of a variety of patriotic songs--and a perfect narrator. Stockard Channing narrates like an old-time barker and manages to be slightly irreverent as well. She changes moods easily while pointing out the all-too-human highs and lows of our presidential history. Although some of the humor and vocabulary make this appropriate for older students, younger students will definitely enjoy the illustrations and information. W.L.S.
