We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: Mike Venezia once again uses his winning formula of combining humor with history to make learning fun. Each book in this series is an appealing mix of full-color historical images and photos, Mike's hilarious cartoon-style illustrations, and simple, factual text describing each person's path toward the nation's highest office. These biographies are peppered with humbling and funny anecdotes that bring out the humanity of each of these historical figures and help kids realize that these were real people--not just names from history books. Zachary Taylor grew up on a frontier farm in Kentucky and joined the U.S. Army as a young man. He spent more than 30 years in the military, fighting American Indians, the British, and the Mexican Army. In fact, when "Old Rough and Ready" was elected president in 1848, it was not because he had any political experience, but because he was a famous and popular war hero. During his presidency, he helped negotiate the Compromise of 1850, which for a time kept the country from erupting into civil war over the issue of slavery. Unfortunately, he became sick with a stomach ailment after a July 4th celebration, and died in 1850 after only 16 months in office.
