When George Washington became the first President of the United States, there were nine future presidents already alive in America, doing things like working on a farm and studying medicine. When JFK became the 35th president, there were ten future presidents already alive in America, doing things like hosting TV shows and learning the saxophone. And right now—today!—there are at least ten future presidents alive in America. They could be playing basketball, like Barack Obama, or helping in the garden, like Dwight D. Eisenhower. They could be solving math problems or reading books. They could be making art—or already making change.
This compelling exploration of the presidents before they were presidents—as kids, adventurers, journalists, gun-slingers, and more!—illustrates the powerful truth that the presidents of the future could be practically anyone . . . including YOU.
