Publisher Description:
Did you know that John Adams had to coax Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence? It's true. The shy Virginia statesman refused at first, but then went on to author one of our nation's most important and inspiring documents. The third U.S. president, Jefferson was also an architect, inventor, musician, farmer, and-what is certainly the most troubling aspect of his life-a slave owner. Finally, here's a biography for kids that unveils the many facets of this founding father's remarkable and complicated life.
Illustrated by John O'Brien.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Spring)
[cf2]Jefferson[cf1] offers an adequate introduction but occasionally gets bogged down in detail (however, his sexual relationship with Sally Hemings is included as fact). [cf2]Keller[cf1] reads more smoothly. Black-and-white drawings and boxed sections on topics such as the Boston Tea Party and Braille expand the biographical information, but the overall presentation is lackluster. Timeline. Bib. [Review covers these Who Wasà? titles: [cf2]Who Was Thomas Jefferson?[cf1] and [cf2]Who Was Helen Keller?[cf1].] Copyright 2004 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
