The Scholastic Encyclopedia of the Presidents and Their Times
By David Rubel


Publisher’s Description
The Scholastic Encyclopedia of the Presidents and Their Times profiles every president who has served in our nation’s highest office. This book not only explains the issues and the challenges that each president faced but also the headlines, people, scandals, and fads that were defining America during each presidency. The history of our nation unfolds through the terms of its presidents, with one page for each year that the leader was in office. A special section is devoted to the history of the presidential home: the White House.



Booklist review
This is an attractive, inexpensive resource for elementary school students, providing concise information in an easy-to-read format. It is recommended for the children’s section of public libraries and elementary school media centers that lack the financial resources to buy individual books on each president.
