The best way to learn about history (other than living through it) is with engaging activities, which makes Hail to the Chief! Fun Facts and Activities about the US Presidents by Tracey West the perfect election week companion.

About Hail to the Chief! Fun Facts and Activities about the US Presidents by Tracey West: “The perfect election-year activity book from Smithsonian. It all started with George Washington, as does this cool activity book that looks at each of the United States presidents and what was notable—or notorious—about their terms. Filled with facts, photos, puzzles, mazes, word games, and other fun activities, plus a full-color sticker page and press-out, build-your-own Oval Office cards.”

Although intended for young readers, the Smithsonian’s Hail to the Chief activity book can help adults learn the things that they forgot from their school years or most likely never knew.

Hail to the Chief! Fun Facts and Activities about the US Presidents by Tracey West is available from Amazon and other fine book retailers.
