  • Review 1 of 4

    I purchased this to use with my five and 10 year old sons. At first they balked when I popped it into the car's cd player, but I told them, "Let's listen to it every time we are in the car for just one week and then see how much we have learned." They were agreeable, so the experiment began! (I will note that we typically were in the car anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour a day, just running errands or going to and from school/sports.) Within a week, all three of us had learned all the presidents, their terms, facts... pretty much all of the songs! We would even sing them when we weren't in the car because they grew on us so much! I can't recall if we liked them immediately or not, but I can tell you that it was perfect for learning about the branches of government and Presidential history so they definitely were never annoying. I highly recommend this cd if you are looking for something catchy to teach these subjects. - Cat N. in Tennessee

    Review 2 of 4

    Presidents & U.S. Government is an audio CD with an accompanying 32-page flat-spined book that makes learning about American Presidents fun. Engaging rap songs help students memorize the names of America's Presidents and basics about the American government in this dynamic CD. It is a wonderful addition to children's audio libraries, public and private. - Midwest Book Review Political Science Shelf

    Review 4 of 4

    "The presidents songs on this CD have been entertaining and useful for my class. We put on a play and used the George Washington song and the song about Abraham Lincoln. I've included a DVD that has the play that was videotaped by one of our parents. Thank you for giving us permission to use it." – Stephanie B, 4th grade teacher
