Product Details


“Using Thomas Jefferson’s own admissions of passion for both his new country and agriculture, details are given about a few of his activities, inventions, and accomplishments, beginning after the Revolutionary War…. The text… contains sophisticated ideas and vocabulary, and numerous quotations appear in the entertaining artwork and the text itself…. It is no small feat to choose but a few facts about such a well-documented life; the choices made and the method of telling are both exemplary.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Innerst’s muted gouache paintings contribute playful touches… that are in step with Thomas’s informal narration and Jefferson’s curiosity and optimism.” —Publishers Weekly

“An informative supplement to more standard picture-book biographies of Jefferson…” —Booklist
