Review:
What Presidents are Made Of is an entertaining picture book formatted exploration of some little known facts about fourteen Presidents of the United States. The depiction of each president is made up of a collage of objects that, in some way, reflects the story or the personality of the President. Each portrait is given a character trait with witch children will be able to identify -- Andrew Jackson’s quick temper, Jimmy Carter’s good deeds and Teddy Roosevelt’s boundless energy. Children will be fascinated as they explore all of the objects used to create each likeness. Piven has created an original, imaginatively designed book for the youngest children to begin learning about some of our Presidents.
