John Adams: Second President 1797-1801 (Getting to Know the US Presidents) Reviews
Well-written, nicely illustrated introduction to a neglected president. John Adams was brilliant, dedicated, and very difficult to work with. He was one of the leaders for American independence and represented the new nation in France, Holland, and Great Britain. His presidency--sandwiched between the more popular George Washington and Thomas Jefferson--was at a difficult time. He is remembered for laws that violated free speech, but he is not remembered for keeping the US out of war.
I am a teacher of middle school students with learning disabilities. What a treasure Mike Venezia's many books are. They are well-written, funny and accessible -- while being factually correct. The students really learn a lot from these books. The students got to see the benefits of the Federalist party, which generally they thought was only for the interests of big money.
