Publishers Weekly

Holub (the Mini Myths series) gives a (very) light overview of 10 U.S. presidents, including Washington, Jefferson, Kennedy, and Obama. Enthusiastic rhymes pair with South Park-y cartoons from Roode (Glasses to Go), as well as tidbits about each man ("Ulysses S. Grant made Christmas a Federal holiday"). While the book introduces some notable figures from American history, details and context are scant. Of Lincoln, "This little president was honest as can be./ He kept our states united and set people free," and it's unclear what Holub is referring to when she says that Reagan "brought the world together, both near and far" (perhaps the end of the Cold War). Cute but superfluous. Ages 3-5. Illustrator's agency: Illustrator's agency: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Feb.)
