Children's book: Hail to the Chief
Our country's election is right around the corner. We have had some amazing Presidents through our country's histroy and this book is a fun way to introduce children to some of them. Let me tell you a little bit about a wonderful children's book called Hail to the Chief by Callista Gingrich and illustrated by Susan Arciero.
This book is part of the "Ellis the Elephant" series. I reviewed another book about this cute elephant here.
In this book Ellis meets some of our presidents along with a few facts about what they did during their presidency.
The illustrations are adorable, and I felt the presidents were very recognizable even though they were cartoons. I love the rhyming text. That makes it really appealing to me, and I think that it will make it more interesting for children to pay attention and learn from this book. This would make a wonderful addition to your classroom library for an America unit or when you study Presidents in February.
I received this book from the publisher for my review. Thank you.
Have a day of blessings!
