A gorgeous collection of American presidents filled with fun facts and sparkling with personality, from nonfiction master Ken Burns.

This special treasury from America’s beloved documentarian Ken Burns brings the presidents to life for our nation’s children. Each president is given a lushly illustrated spread with curated stories and information to give readers of all ages a comprehensive view of the varied and fascinating characters who have led our nation (with the exception of Grover Cleveland—the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms—who gets two spreads!). A must-have for Ken’s many fans, classrooms, and anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for our country.


“A buoyant gallery, up to date, handsomely framed, and, in this particular election year, timely too.”—Kirkus Reviews
