Known as the Father of the Constitution, James Madison served two terms as the fourth president, from 1809 until 1817. When the British set fire to Washington D.C., in 1814, Dolley saved one of our country's greatest treasures, a portrait of George Washington, before fleeing for her life.
David A. Adler and Michael S. Adler have collaborated on several biographies, including A Picture Book of Cesar Chavez, which Kirkus Reviews called "a sturdy, worthwhile addition to the series." They both live in the New York City metropolitan area.
Ronald Himler has illustrated more than a hundred books for children, including several books in the Picture Book Biography series. He lives in Arizona.
According to the title, this is a "picture book." While there are many, many pictures, this book is really no more than a long listing of facts about Dolley and James Madison. In my opinion, you can actually relate too many facts and miss the STORY.
I was very disappointed in this book. The author has forgotten what it means to be a child. I would also say that, while the grammar is for lower grades, the content is really meant for older children. This book does not hold their interest, nor does it have an engaging story.
I would not buy this book for younger grades.
