Praise

“This attractive picture book uses Thomas Jefferson’s love of reading and collecting books as a lens through which to view the story of his life. . . An informative author’s note rounds out this appealing introduction to Jefferson.” —Booklist

“This unusual picture-book biography fosters a new understanding of Thomas Jefferson’s life as viewed through his love of books and its impact on our burgeoning nation. . .Sure to be enjoyed, this is an engaging study of one of our Founding Father’s great legacies.” —Kirkus Reviews

“It is no small feat to entertain children in a book about loving books (an increasingly croweded shelf), but this duo succeeds admirably through well-chosen facts, staggering statistics, an interactive text, and humor. . . This is a unique portrayal of the life and passions of the third president.” —School Library Journal

“Jefferson’s well-documented obsession with books–reading, recommending, lending, gifting, and collecting–gets the picture-book treatment in this chatty biography that describes the journey of Jefferson’s collection from private stash to the basis of the Library of Congress. . .” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
