Presidents in Picture Books
Posted on September 14, 2020
It is, therefore, not news that there’s no shortage of reading material about the presidency, especially during an election year. But you may be surprised – I was, anyway – at how many kids’ picture books about presidents there are.
(But there are almost no picture books about Senators or Attorneys General! C’mon, publishing industry. Thirty thousand picture books about bears but not a single one about county auditors?)
Many presidential picture books revolve around fictional occupants of the executive branch and the fictional kids who meet them – or are them.
