    Epic Fails Not So Great Presidents Commanders in Chief by Erik Slader and Ben Thompson 151 pages Roaring Brook Press Macmillan 2019 7Language G 0 swears; Mature Content G; Violence GBUYING ADVISORY EL OPTIONAL AUDIENCE APPEAL AVERAGEDid you know that Martin Van Buren gave the longest inauguration speech in a blizzard without a jacket and ended up dying of pneumonia one month later? Or that some of our presidents were notoriously clumsy? This book is a collection of the errors presidents made that were both humorous and human and the errors that were disastrous for the nation and resulted in civilian loss The order of this book had the presumably unintended conseuence of making it hard to remember the things I learned while reading By grouping presidents in creative and playful groups eccentric presidents unlucky presidents etc instead of in chronological order I had a hard time mentally organizing myself Jen Wecker HS English Teacherhttpskissthebookjrblogspotcom20

    Many of the United States presidents have served their country honorably but all have made mistakes This book gives a brief history on every US president including the things that show they’re only human Thomas Jefferson and John Adams dueled argued and name called for years before becoming friends John uincy Adams approved an expedition to find mole people in the center of the earth William Howard Taft got stuck in a bath tub Andrew Johnson was the first president to be impeached William Nixon liked eating cottage cheese with ketchup Oh yeah and he was a part of the Watergate Scandal From little uirks to huge mishaps no president was perfect But America is what it is today because of themThis book takes on an informal tone to teach kids about history It’s full of humor and personality from Star Wars references to snarky commentary by the author It is written in chapter book format with small illustrations and historical photographs here and there making it suitable for older primary aged children and intermediate children While the book focuses on the uirks of the presidents than a regular history book it still includes the most significant facts about each of the presidents’ lives and terms It explains complicated things like political parties and the duties of the US president in a simple way Even the Watergate Scandal is laid out in such a way that a child could understand it This book could be utilized to teach young readers about government and US history in a fun and exciting wayContains mild violenceReview originally published on Children's Book and Media Review

    I think a different title would go a long way to making the book agreeable at the onset The title gives the book and its subject a negative connotation Yes there have been many not so great presidents but the overall theme of the book seems to point out the positive aspects of the presidents and a different title would be appealing and accurate The structure of the book can be a little confusing The authors don’t take a linear approach to the subject but jump around grouping presidents by their flaws unlucky corrupt in some and sometimes by significant episodes in history the Civil War World Wars It creates some disjointed moments The modern cultural references and occasional slang will probably appeal to young readers The book is a good introduction to the presidents and with the humorous anecdotes it could capture the imagination and spur a lasting interest in American history Overall it was an enjoyable book

    This book is a cute little uick history about our presidents of the United States It is written and maybe a 5th grade level but had some interesting facts that I did not know about the earlier presidents I wish the book went in chronological order instead of based on theme I also wish this book was titled something different as it is not about what the title of the book is but instead is just a brief history If it keeps its title I would like to see of the little slip ups that show that presidents are also people

    Great for children's introduction to American presidents However so much is watered down and simplified that it's hard to really say if the book is good or not for educational purposes I think I would use segments as introductions for a 30000 ft introduction in history lessonsThere is minor biasim that adults can pick up on but children won't notice particularly if they later look for deeper history booksSorry for any grammar issues i have a error code popping up about barcodes and I can't see half my screen

    This book has some pros and cons Pros are that some of the historical fails are very straight foward with what they did wrong And some of those fails i did not know Cons are that the book still tip toes around other fails so as to not completely ruin the facade of a great american country I saw some small issues with heroism I realize this is written for juveniles but i dont think that should matter Entertaining though

    I love every single book in this series but this one is certainly the most comprehensive It covers every single president of the US full of facts and history but does a great job showing the humanity flaws and poor decisions of presidents I love that these books offer a balanced view of history showing that we can see things differently in the moment versus in retrospect

    This was an excellent introduction to the US presidents A very easy read I read this with my kindergartener and he learned so much While some of the words were above his understanding he was at least able to sound many of them out He is looking forward to reading from the Epic Fails series
