Family Feedback:

“I really enjoyed the trivia. It was very fun to see how well we know our presidents and see the impact that they made on our country. My favorite quote was, ‘Our rights are not given to us by man; our rights come from the creator. No matter what, no Earthly force can take those rights away. That is why the words Praise be to God are etched atop the Washington Monument, and those same words are etched into the hearts of our people’ - Donald Trump.” Kash, age 17

“I really enjoyed the trivia and guessing who each president was. It was fun to compete against my family members. I thought it was cool to learn that the 80's was when our country saw technological advancements including the cell phone.” Emma, age 14

“I didn't know we had so many presidents.” Kaleb, age 8

“I love that my family can use this book with so many courses. It's a great add to American History and in the future with America's Story and US Geography. It's also a fun book to play trivia with!!! I really enjoyed seeing my children engaged and interested in learning about our Commanders in Chief and the different things each administration faced. It was awesome that the book wasn't outdated and included our current President!” Anna, homeschool mom to Kash, Emma, & Kaleb

“Meet the Chief is another great resource from Master Books! The colorful, easy-to-read layout allows you to see the highlights of each president and events in our country during their time of service. My kids are also enjoying challenging themselves and each other with the trivia sections located throughout the book.” Summer, homeschool mom

Great overview
Review by Quick Facts!
We use this each year for our President’s timeline. I also used it for our American Heritage Girls unit as a quick Study on President’s Day.
Review by Jessie
I got this as a pdf and the images and font are all very vivid and clear. This is such a great resource for learning about any and every president. I like the quotes found that spoke about God. I can see the author tried hard to be unbiased about our latest few presidents, was honest about known speculations and didn't shy away from giving them supposed credit, but didn't give any opinions. I recommend.
Perfect Companion to Any History Course
Review by Emily
This book is hard to put down and I think it really will instill a love of our country as it is read. Just what I was looking for to go in depth on the presidents as we study history this year.
Lots of pictures!
Review by Anika
Meet the Chief is a concise and helpful book summarizing the presidents, their timeline and significant events that occurred during their terms. I like all the pictures spread out over every page!

We've been using it alongside America's Story to give a little more insight in who our presidents were and are!
A Favorite!
Review by Melissa
My son loves learning about people and history and this has been a favorite book of his. At one point, we were reading every night before bed. He loves the 2 trivia questions on each page set and we always have to do that first!
Great resource
Review by Amanda
Perfect for those inquisitive kids! My daughter wanted to know all about the presidents and this book is a wonderful resource :)
Good supplement
Review by KP22
We enjoyed using this with America's Story to learn about our presidents. We particularly enjoyed reading more about the presidents as we came across them in the history book.
Obama/Joe Biden
Review by Michele
I cannot believe the author would write anything good on those two... maybe, “Meet the Liar and Chief.”
We should call these demons out for what they are... they are a disgrace to America and they prey on kids.
Great resource book!
Review by AngieS
I am excited to have this book as a great resource book for my upper elementary kiddo. It is really well done!
very good over view
Review by Lauren
I'm using this book with my son, every time a president is mentioned in America's Story, so we get a little more information on them. We love all the tidbits of information, and seeing what else was going on while they were in office.
