My Favorite Book Giveaway: Your Presidential Dream Team
During the summer I have had the chance to read several books, but my favorite one this summer was definitely Daniel O'Brien's "Your Presidential Fantasy Dream Team." This is one of the best Presidential Biography books I have read and definitely the most kid friendly!
O'Brien poses the question at the very beginning of the book that will draw your students in. He asks
"What if a zombie apocalypse or a robot uprising threatened the nation, and you had the power to recruit some of the nation's finest presidents to help save the day?"
In each brief chapter he introduces you to the President and tells of their Superpowers as you try to decide you if want that President to join your Fantasy Team! You are looking to fill 5 spots:
(He is a huge Teddy Roosevelt fan and his chapters on him are fantastic!)
The illustrations in the book are eye-catching as well. I enjoyed it so much I am in the process of making some short biographies about each president and I am working on putting together some kind of tournament where my students build their teams and compete with one another. Those details will be coming a little later in the year, as that will be a culminating project for our school year!
The Winner will be announced September 13th!
