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 It was awesome that the book wasn't outdated and included our current President!”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 reference book
Review by Love2BeMom
I highly recommend this book for upper elementary and junior high school students. The author did a great job with the colourful layout. A perfect addition to the other America’s Story series.
Great Introduction to Presidents
Review by Amanda
Meet the Chief is a great introduction of the presidents for students. You get a short history of the president as well important dates during that presidency. We love the information shared and I love that my 6-year-old is learning about the presidents, while my 12-year-old is taking this information and digging deeper!
Great for President study
Review by Amy
This is a great book to use for studying the Presidents. It has information about each President and a timeline of events that happened during their presidency.
Great Educational Resource with Interesting Information about Each U.S. President
Review by Kelly Ann
This is a fantastic resource for any United States history or government study. It can also be used with students of many different grade levels or age groups. Since it was created in 2021, it includes the most up to date information there is on U.S. presidents, even including facts about President Trump and Biden.

The beginning of the book includes the Presidential Oath, as well as a complete index with all of the forty-six presidents. The index is a nice feature since it also quickly shows each president's name, their birth state, and the years in which they were in office. For each president, there is a two-page spread that initially shows their term years, dates of birth and death (if it applies), along with what party they had belonged to (Independent, Federalist, Republican, Democrat, etc.). The top portion of each two-page spread offers a brief timeline of events that had occurred during each president's time in office. The bottom portions of the two-page spread include a summarization of each president's life and accomplishments while serving the presidential seat.

All in all, we are really enjoying this book. There are a lot of great facts and biographical information not only on each president, but we also get to read what was going on during each period of history. I personally appreciate that it so up to date and has now even replaced several other presidential books that we currently own, thanks to this little feature. "Meet the Chief!" is a great educational resource and will definitely be put to good use in our homeschool for many years to come.
Review by Lacee
I really liked Joel King's Star Spangled State Book and this Meet the Chief book more than meets my expectations! This will be a great addition to our homeschool either alongside America's Story or for studying the Presidents. The layout is fantastic and the pictures are lovely. I also really like the timeline of important events that runs across the top of the pages.
