This book is very educational for all ages. It teaches a lot of good information in a short amount of time.

This book is a glimpse into the past. It explains the life and the stories of our past presidents. It then goes into explaining what the president does and who might be the next president. It goes into a section about how it might be a student in a classroom right now. This creates excitement and might even spark the idea for a student that this might be something that they would like to do.

I recommend this book. The only thing is that it will become outdated once new Presidents come into office. You can use it to teach the past and then catch them up with other materials on the future. I would use this in my classroom when teaching about presidents. This gives information and facts without allowing it to get political. ( )

What an intriguing thought, that 10 of our future presidents may be alive right now, including those who are just children with no thought or concept at all of leading the country! Author Messner shows the proof in the pudding by looking at the years 1789, 1841, 1897, and 1961; and who the presidents were at the time, and which someday-soon presidents were alive then. There are plenty of easily digestible fun facts throughout, ideal for poring over. It closes with the tantalizing question "where is the next president and what are they doing right now?" Who knows, you might be the one who becomes president! ( )

In this unusual book, the author discusses some of the many men who have been presidents of the United States while also having an inspirational message that the next few future presidents are currently out there dreaming and doing.

This book came across my radar when my supervisor mentioned there was some controversy about it regarding an illustration showing enslaved people building the White House. When I looked up reviews, I found instead everyone harping on how there's a picture of Hillary Clinton and not one of Trump. (This latter point is not entirely true; Trump is shown a boy in the 1960s on one page spread where several others who were going to grow up to become president. On a different page spread, Hillary's portrait is shown in a museum gallery with a young girl looking up to her, alongside some text noting how most the presidents have been men but Clinton became the first female candidate of a major political party. This comes right before the final pages noting how future presidents are out there right now, basically encouraging all children -- male or female, able-bodied or disabled, of any religious background, of any racial/ethnic background -- that they could have political aspirations to make change in their world.)

So, I absolutely loved this book and thought the so-called controversies were nothing. I've already noted how the Hillary Clinton one was overblown above. As for the illustration of enslaved people building the White House, that is simply showing an uncomfortable truth that some people don't want to face. That problem lies with the reader, not with the text. We should be talking about the problematic parts of our country's history in order to learn from mistakes and do better in the future. The text also notes how many of the first presidents had enslaved people on their plantations, despite their ideals of an equal and just America. Again, hard truths but ones we need to confront. It is done in a child-friendly way that is factual and not graphic or gratuitous.

In keeping with the idea that the next president is already among us, each time the book moves forward chronologically, it will note the then president and what other future presidents were around at the same time, including what they were doing. For example in 1841 when William Henry Harrison was sworn in as president, James Garfield was a child working on his family farm. So it does follow a timeline going forward, but it leaps ahead to different years, not necessarily doing a mini-biography for president 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ... all the way to 45, like many other children's nonfiction books about presidents. Those other books certainly have their place, but I like that this one is a little bit different. For each president mentioned, only 2 to 3 sentences worth of information is given. It's generally some major highlights about their birthplace/hometown, education, jobs held, and/or some random interesting trivia. I learned some new facts, and it was all done in a super interesting way that kept me engaged with the text.

The illustrations are well done, with a swooshing line often seen connecting various thoughts, text bubbles, and illustrations. Each president has their number listed somewhere near their illustration, with increasingly more clever ways of doing this. For instance, young Trump has "45" on a model airplane he is holding, while teen-aged Roosevelt has "32" on the boat he is sailing. For the sections that talk about how future presidents are among us, care is given to show people as diverse as Americans are.

Backmatter includes an extensive bibliography and some notes with additional information such as data on presidential birthplaces and a list of the Constitutional requirements for becoming president. This is again done in a way to encourage the reader that anyone -- including themselves -- could be the next president. ( )

Great children’s book about the presidents up to and including trump. It also includes the rules for becoming president. ( )

A fascinating approach to writing about the presidency, past and future. The first and last illustrations in the generous double-page-spread provided by the landscape layout show people of all ages and kinds wandering through a museum gallery of presidential portraits. In between, Messner takes the reader from George Washington to Donald Trump, noting how many future presidents were alive and what they were up to when each president was in office (e.g. 1789: "When George Washington became the first president of the United States, there were nine future presidents already alive in America. Four of them were already working alongside Washington in the nation's capital"). Messner points out that "America's earliest presidents weren't that different from one another. Most were wealthy, white, Protestant men..." but it doesn't have to be that way: she explains exactly what the presidential requirements are (natural-born citizen, at least 35 years of age, lived in U.S. at least 14 years). Additional back matter includes a presidential booklist and a bibliography. ( )
