DEAR MR. PRESIDENT Thomas Jefferson: Letters from a Philadelphia Bookworm

by | Read by George Guidall, Victor Slezaic, Erin Cardillo

Children Ages 8+ • 1.9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

Events of 200 years ago are discussed in an exchange of fictional correspondence between President Thomas Jefferson and a precocious young lady of 12, Amelia Hornsby, of Philadelphia. Through this exchange, we're treated to discussions of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, contemporary advances in science and technology, events leading to the War of 1812, and many others big and small. The correspondence has a feeling of immediacy that will captivate its intended audience of 8- to 12-year-olds. George Guidall et al. offer wonderful performances. Jefferson is a calm and patient correspondent with a certain paternal authority. Amelia is overflowing with the wonder and energy of youth. M.T.F.
