About the Author

Anne Rockwell is a pioneer in the field of nonfiction for very young children. She has more than a hundred books to her credit, including Why Are the Ice Caps Melting and Clouds in the Let"s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.


K-Gr 2-Another successful title by this prolific mother/daughter team. This time the children in Mrs. Madoff's class are going to celebrate President's Day by putting on an assembly program. Some of the students construct a papier-m'chi model of Mount Rushmore while others dress as various presidents and deliver brief but informative speeches about them. The text is engaging and includes flashes of humor. At the conclusion of the play, the children hold a mock election and the qualities of a good leader are neatly summed up: "I wrote Pablo's name because he's smart and never mean." Back matter includes a few facts about each of the Rushmore presidents. Rockwell's clean, uncluttered illustrations are bright and bold and depict children engaged in the learning process and thoroughly enjoying it. An excellent introduction to the holiday for younger grades and a first purchase for most collections.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
