Draw American History!
Draw your way through American history with the most amazing supplement we have ever offered, A Kid’s Guide to Drawing the Presidents of the United States of America. Available for the first time to homeschool families, these forty-two library-bound, fact-filled volumes provide not only rich biographical synopses of every U.S. president from George Washington to George W. Bush, but also step-by-step instructional drawings that illustrate key events, people, and places in each president’s life.

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.

My Review:

Each reviewer was offered one book from this series to look over. We received the book, How to Draw the Life and Times of Martin Van Buren, who was the 8th President of the United States. The books give the perfect amount of information on each President and interesting facts and pictures that correlate to his life. We even learned that he grew up not to far from us here in New York! My kids wanted to keep drawing until they finished their pictures and both were very proud of what they could accomplish. My daughter was especially happy that we would be keeping this book so she could go back and try the drawings again.

These books are not only great for homeschoolers but any child that loves to draw and/or learn more about our US Presidents. What a great summer learning project this would be!

Wanna find more great history or art resources for that special child in your life. Links included!
