Kid Presidents
True Tales of Childhood from America's Presidents
מאת David Stabler
קח בהשאלה קח בהשאלה
Hilarious childhood biographies and full-color illustrations show how George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Barack Obama, and other presidents-to-be faced kid-sized problems growing up in America.

Every president started out as a kid! Forget the legends, tall tales, and historic achievements—before they were presidents, the future leaders of the United States had regular-kid problems just like you. John F. Kennedy hated his big brother. Lyndon Johnson pulled pranks in class. Barack Obama was bothered by bullies. And Bill Clinton was crazy clumsy (he once broke his leg jumping rope). Kid Presidents tells all of their stories and more with full-color cartoon illustrations on every page. History has never been this much fun!

  • From the book Barack Obama: New Kid in Town, Born 1961
    When elected in 2008, Barack Obama made history. He was the first black man, and the first "skinny kid with big ears and a funny name," as he put it, to become president of the United States. Being the first anything is never easy, as Obama would learn during his two terms in office. But he was prepared for it. After spending his boyhood in Indonesia, he knew a little something about being the new kid in town.
    The moment he walked through the front gate of his new home, little Barry Obama knew one thing for sure: he wasn't in Honolulu anymore.
    For starters, a huge hairy animal was ready to hop onto his shoulders. The creature was high in the treetops of Barry's new front yard, perched on a branch and howling at him. Amazed, Barry turned to his mother, who was equally surprised.
    "His name is Tata," explained Barry's stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, who owned the house and the swinging simian guest.
    Stepping into the ape's enormous shadow, Lolo paused to feed it a peanut from his pocket. Then he turned to his stepson. "I brought him all the way from New Guinea for you!"
    Barry knew that his stepfather had a job drawing maps for the Indonesian army, and that his work took him to some strange and faraway places. But he had no idea that Lolo had returned from one of his trips with such an unusual welcome-home gift.
    Barry leaned forward to examine the ape. Tata, however, was not in a welcoming mood. He looked like he was about to lunge forward, so Barry backed away.
    "Don't worry," Lolo reassured him. "He's on a leash." He gave Tata another peanut and then gestured for Barry and his mother to follow him into the backyard. "Come," he said. "There's more."
    This new place was a big change for Barry. Back in Hawaii, he had lived with his grandparents in a four-bedroom home in one of Honolulu's prettiest neighborhoods.
    His new house, on the volcanic island of Java, was in a ramshackle neighborhood on the outskirts of town. Half the people in the capital of Jakarta lived in old bamboo huts. Electricity had come to the residents only a couple years earlier.
    To get to his new house, Barry had to cross a narrow rickety bridge over a wide brown river. Below he could see children riding water buffalo and villagers washing their clothes in the muddy water.
    Barry felt like he had traveled to an exotic and distant land. Things went from strange to stranger when he followed Lolo into the backyard.
    From the looks of the place, you might have thought Lolo was a zookeeper. Animals emerged to greet them from all corners: chickens and ducks, a snake, an iguana, even a turtle the size of a cookie tin. A large yellow dog howled. A big white cockatoo screeched. Two brilliantly colored birds shook their long tail feathers. Barry would soon learn they were called birds of paradise and could be found all over New Guinea. Lolo explained that his travels allowed him to pursue an unusual hobby: collecting unusual animals.
    The strangest creature of all resided in a concrete tub, about a foot and a half deep and a yard long that was half submerged in a small pond fenced off by chicken wire. Green and scaly, it looked like a cross between a dragon and a crocodile. The Indonesians knew it as a biawak, or monitor lizard, a venomous meat eater that liked to feast on crabs, squid, and fish. As Barry peered into the tub, he made a frightening discovery. There wasn't just one lizard. There were two!
    As the only foreign child in the neighborhood, Barry was teased more than any other kid. His appearance also made him stand out. He was chubby, with dark skin and...

  • DOGO Books bibliophile - I really enjoyed this captivating but informal story! I thought it was really similar to the Uncle John series and the National Geographic series, which you should check out these series if you enjoyed this awesome book! So this book had true stories of our U.S. president's childhood stories and guess what???? It also had cartoons to go with it... which totally made my day....I was reading the book with such fascination, I was examining the book to the stories to the illustrations to the captions! It's quirky but amazing fun facts made me easier to understand and remember all these new facts.... What I also like about this book is that is shows how many people have the same problems like us, and they grew up to be aspiring presidents from all over the place helping every one of us... All of you guys have a dream???? Well stick to it, and keep on trying.. because maybe one day YOU can be the NEXT PRESIDENT!!!!

    “Every president in United States history started out like you and me,” writes Stabler (a pseudonym for author Robert Schnakenberg), before going on to prove it. The stories he’s assembled show how the young lives of the men who became president encompassed nearly everything that kids go through today, including blended families (Lincoln), helicopter parenting (F.D.R.), crushes (Nixon), bullies (Eisenhower, Kennedy), being the new kid (Obama), and odd obsessions that drive parents crazy (“Herbert Hoover once ate nothing but pears for two whole days”). The text is straightforward, upbeat, and resolutely apolitical, organized into easy-to-digest sections that alternate between stories of individual presidents and roundups on themes like chores, jobs, and what teachers thought of the presidents as students. “When you grow up, you’re either going to be governor or get in a lot of trouble,” said Bill Clinton’s sixth-grade teacher (though no citation for this or any other quotation is provided). Horner’s spot cartoons ensure readers won’t mistake this for a history textbook and contribute some funny metafictional moments: “We need strawberries!” says Theodore Roosevelt’s mother in one drawing. “Stop waving to the readers and go!” Ages 8–12. (Oct.)

    Stories from their child and teen years reveal that U.S. presidents were kids like any others-with hobbies and families and escapades both amusing and alarming. Robert Schnakenberg, author of Secret Lives of Great Authors (illustrated by Mario Zucca, 2008) and similar titles for adults, uses a pseudonym for this entertaining collection of presidential trivia. Embellishing the story of Washington and the cherry tree with a fire-breathing dinosaur, he points out that that oft-told anecdote is fantasy. Instead, he offers 16 "true tales" organized into three sections, along with additional factoids about games and pranks, early jobs and mishaps, as well as teachers' comments about our nation's leaders. He rounds out his collection with a final surprising fact about each of the 44 presidents (Cleveland gets two for his two nonconsecutive terms). With examples that include Grant's early horsemanship, Obama's travails as a new boy in Jakarta, Indonesia, and the nearsighted Reagan's butterfly collection, the author presents engaging vignettes of these men as boys. Horner's full-color cartoons add to the humor. For young readers wanting to know more about individual presidents, the author provides suggested titles. Troublingly, though, there is no indication of the author's sources, either in the book or on the publisher's website. These tales are pleasingly told, but readers cannot know where the facts end and embellishment begins. Young readers deserve to know that, too. Lively but not reliable.

    Gr 4-6-With cartoonish illustrations that will attract fans of Jeff Kinney's "The Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and Rachel Renee Russel's "The Dork Diaries," this informative offering leaves no presidential childhood rock unturned. Children will enjoy the parallels of these presidential lives and their own, from Franklin Roosevelt's helicopter mother to Hebert Hoover's friendships with Native Americans to Barack Obama's tumultuous years in Indonesia. Disorganized kids will be happy to read that John F. Kennedy was given a scathing report card that once stated that he "can seldom locate his possessions." Kids will especially enjoy the section on pranks pulled by previous presidents. Oddly, this book is not organized chronologically, nor is each segment broken down into any rational sequence. Overall, the style is funny and lighthearted. Being a kid isn't always easy, even for those on the path for greatness, like many of these men. The further reading at the end of book provides a nice resource for those who want to learn more about their favorite resident of the Oval Office. Give this fun and accessible title to "Who Was..." series (Penguin) fans or reluctant readers who enjoys history.-Keith Klang, Port Washington Public Library, NY
