Jim Weiss's stories bring history alive for children. Though few children would be inclined to pick up a biography of Thomas Jefferson, many will be delighted to hear interesting facts about a man who had so much to do with shaping the history of the United States, as told by Jim Weiss. Weiss has a particular, slow way of telling stories; he relishes the lively detail and revels in bringing alive conversations and personalities through imagined speech. By making historical figures into human beings with joys and sorrows and quirks of their own, Weiss draws on children's natural curiosity and invites them to delve more deeply into the past.
