Reviews

Playful renditions of 'Hail to the Chief' provide a musical backdrop for St. George's portrayal of the diverse and often eccentric men who have held our nation's highest office. Best of the Best List. - School Library Journal

“...absorbing and entertaining, offering little bits of presidential trivia.... 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.... Although some of the humor and vocabulary make this appropriate for older students, younger students will definitely enjoy the illustrations and information." - AudioFile

“Stockard Channing infuses this Caldecott winner with life and wry humor.” - ALA Notable Recordings Committee

“This compilation of historical facts, anecdotes, and quippy commentary is a good starting point for a younger child to begin learning about the most powerful office in the country, if not the world -- from the heights and pets of the presidents to their epicurean and haberdashery styles.” - Recess!
