What does the President do when he is not working? Play of course. The presidents like to do many sports from swimming to golf to basketball to making up their own game. There were some unique sports like fishing and horseshoes. Some do activities to stay in shape while others like to attend sporting events.
The text was fun and very kid-friendly. It gave the right amount of information without being too much. I loved that this book really humanized the presidents for kids.
The illustrations were so much fun. They kind of reminded me of caricatures, but more refined. It made it a real treat for my kids to look at. I loved the drawing of all the presidents on the endpapers. What a great learning tool to help kids memorize the presidents.
My three-year-old and six-year-old liked learning about what the Presidents like to do for fun. It made the Presidents seem real instead of some high-ranking government official that make laws. It gave Presidents a fun side for kids.
