    Story
    "Who Knew?!?!"
    Where does Lives of the Presidents rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is probably one of the middle books. I love history and this absolutely covers it, but not the serious side of it. It was a nice break away from some of the more heavy books I have read.


    What other book might you compare Lives of the Presidents to and why?

    I think the books by Vowel might be good because of the way she mixes in humor and the real story about history and what happened.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed learning more about the person and the presidency and especially liked having a review of what order they served in and what were the key points of each era.
