    I have looked at several options to use for our kids to study and get to know the U.S. presidents and what each one is most known for. I received this product free in order to give honest review, and I am really looking forward to implementing it next year with a couple of our kids. I love the “open and go” style, encouraging independent learning. I also like that there is an option for further research. The guide suggests using this book for grades 4-8, which seems about right. I’ll be using it with our 6th and 8th grade children in the upcoming year. I’ve found a U.S. presidents playlist on YouTube to use with this resource. The book goes from Washington through Trump, so there is not yet a page for Biden. It’s my favorite resource I’ve found so far for studying the presidents.
