MELP Book of the Week

Our Presidents Rock!
by Juliette Turner

Did you know … John Quincy Adams owned a pet alligator? Ulysses S. Grant received a ticket for riding his horse too fast down the streets of Washington, D.C.? Gerald R. Ford briefly worked as a fashion model?

You are invited on a totally unique journey through presidential history with Juliette Turner, the National Youth Director of Constituting America. Through fun cartoons, quotes, great graphics, and Juliette's quirky sense of humor, you'll discover tons of fun new facts about the presidents of the United States and the role of the executive branch.

These aren't just a bunch of old men in suits! Many of them were ordinary people like you who overcame trials in order to become America's leader, and all of them entered the political arena with the goal of protecting the country they loved. Written for kids by a kid, Juliette's passion and excitement breathes new life into American history and the role of one of the most powerful positions in the world.

We invite you to read, discuss, and share.

Bookplates

Bookplates are mailed to clubs upon receipt of the list of books to be donated. This enables the Literacy Committee to track the numbers and names of books being donated by Republican women across the country.

To request bookplates, clubs should send a list of the books they are donating to Literacy Committee member Cathy Percefull. Include the club name, the title and author of each book, and the address to which the bookplates should be sent. Bookplates will be mailed in return.

The Literacy Committee will provide the state presidents with a list of participating clubs and the number of books they donate each year.
