A Picture Book of John F. Kennedy
By DAVID A. ADLER
Illustrated by ROBERT CASILLA
â€œAsk not what your country can do for youâ€¦â€ How did the man who spoke those words grow from a young boy to become President?
In an easy-to-follow mix of biography, facts, and history supported with lifelike illustrations, Adler traces Kennedyâ€™s life as a boy, World War II hero, best-selling author, politician, family man, and thirty-fifth President of the United States. The book ends with Kennedyâ€™s assassination and its aftermath.
A time line of important dates in Kennedyâ€™s life helps young readers place the President in history.
