When I put the presentation shown below together, it was four years ago and the intent was to help my then 8-year-old granddaughter learn her US Presidents. Our beautiful Natalie Bella immediately threw a bit of water on that aspiration when she said, “Poppi, wouldn’t it just be easier for me to memorize their names?” The kid had a point but it didn’t stop me from insisting that learning who the US Presidents are is just the first step in learning what each was like and what they accomplished or didn’t accomplish. I’ll never forget what happened next. Natalie looked at me with those big beautiful eyes of her’s and then turned around and yelled “Nonni, do you want to go get our nails done!”
In honor of Presidents’ Day here is my seven rhyming minutes of US Presidential history. There is no recorded sound so please read along!
