U.S. Presidents Reading Project


I came across this wonderful project today started by Lezlie of Books and Border Collies. She created this website - U.S. Presidents Reading Project which has a list of all the presidents and links to suggested lists of books to read more about them. The rules are easy:

1. Read at least one non-fiction book about each of the U.S. Presidents
2. Take as much time as you need
3. Have fun learning about U.S. history and its leaders



I had planned on doing a U.S. Presidents Unit Study with James for this year and this comes at an opportune time. It sound much more fun and interesting, we'll draw it out a bit, rather than condense the information and we'll turn into a family reading project, concentrating on one president at a time without a time limit. I am so stoked and looking forward to reading and learning more about the presidents.

Check out the U.S. Presidents Reading Project for yourself.

  2. I did the same thing last year with my kids but the book I chose was too dry. I think I'll try your source, thanx!

  5. This sounds very interesting. I recently read a biography of Andrew Jackson (American Lion) that read like a novel. Probably too advanced for your son but you might enjoy.
