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.
