Books About President’s Day
1. President’s Day (Robin Hill School) by Margaret McNamara
This is a great learning to read book about a class that learns about President’s Day. One thing to keep in mind when reading this book, however, is that it was published in 2010, meaning that the current president at that time was Barack Obama.
2. Let’s Celebrate President’s Day by Barbara deRubertis
This book compares the lives of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln so that children become aware of their similar challenges and characteristics of leadership. It’s a great read for children ages 6 – 10.
