Draw American History!
Draw your way through American history with the most amazing supplement we have ever offered, A Kid's Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the United States of America.

Enhance Your American History!
A Kid's Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the United States of America is perfect for the family teaching multiple ages or for the child who learns best by doing. Dedicate a week for each president, then encourage your child to collect all his drawings and create his own illustrated history journal. Not only will your child learn how to recreate the likeness of each president and his wife, but also the significant buildings, objects, flags, and seals that were noteworthy during each president's term in office. For instance, your child will learn to draw the USS Arizona in the book on Franklin D. Roosevelt, a torpedo boat in the John F. Kennedy book, the Exxon Valdez in the volume pertaining to George Bush, and the Amistad slave ship in the text on John Quincy Adams. Learning to draw a stagecoach is covered in the James Garfield book, drawing a cannon from Fort McHenry is included in the volume about James Madison, and the Watergate tape recorder is, of course, featured in the book on Richard Nixon's term.

Not Just For Fun!
While every Kid's Guide to Drawing volume includes easy, step-by-step instructions, it would be a pity to think of this series as merely a one-of-a-kind drawing program. Packed with dynamic photos and drawings, all volumes feature an informative timeline of the key achievements of each president, details about his birthplace and/or the state in which he had the greatest impact, a famous portrait of that president, and a list of websites for further information. Not only is this collection of pertinent facts useful for student research or reports, but it is so nicely pulled together, with lots of child-friendly details, that your children will actually enjoy reading through every volume.

Moms and Kids Agree!
What student does not want to learn more about the men who have filled our nation's highest office? Now, with A Kid's Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the United States of America, everyone, including the artistic child, the hands-on wiggler, the reluctant reader, and the political enthusiast, can get an enjoyable overview of many of the highlights of American history!

Review by Petra School December 28, 2011
Reviewer: Angie from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team  
We were reading along in the  A Kid’s Guide to Drawing the Presidents – George Washington on the 15th of June and came across The Birth of a New Nation and the American Flag. The boys were interested to discover that the original description was something like -  “Red and white stripes with 13  stars on a blue field” – so all of the flags did not resemble each other in the 1777. We talked about the 14th being Flag Day and why that would be important to honor and remember our flag.

We also learned about The Star Spangled Banner song, how it started on a scrap of paper through emotional little quips of a poem.  We are gaining ground to July 4th, and have a huge celebration planned.  I was surprised that both boys did not tie the battle with the British to the 4th of July. We’ve studied this before, but it had not sunk in.  Nate was most excited about “The Rockets Red Glare, the Bombs Bursting In Air – Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” We talked in depth about capture the flag and what it means to get to another man’s territory and replace their flag with your own. They both had pretty visual ideas from Night Capture the Flag romps and from the scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean when Jack raises the flag on the British ship each time he “borrows” it for a bit.

My heart is full – as this is one of the first (of many to come) conversations where I didn’t feel like the “teacher” but more of the sharer.
