“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 It was awesome that the book wasn't outdated and included our current President!”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
