All About the Presidents of the United States

Cover Art for Our Country's PresidentsI have read a lot of reference books about the U.S. Presidents and one I particularly like is Our Country's Presidents, written by Ann Bausum and published by National Geographic Society. While it's chock full of information, it's designed to be easy to use and includes a great many interesting illustrations. I recommend the fourth edition, published in 2013, for ages 10 through teens, and think adults will also find it interesting.

Another intriguing book is Our White House: Looking In Looking Out, a combination of fiction and nonfiction about the White House and the families who lived there. It's a big book, with lots of short entries, and is a good read aloud for younger kids as well as a book that appeals to ages 9-12 and beyond.
