Audible Editor Reviews

A very short introduction to former U.S. president John F. Kennedy, narrated in smooth and upbeat tones by actress Leah Vandenburg. Listeners learn about Kennedy's heroic acts in World War II and his rise to the presidency, the important contributions he made during his term, and the story of his untimely end in 1963. Kennedy's historic importance as America's first Catholic president is also emphasized. Gentle instrumental music plays in the background, while Vanenburg's bright tones are likely to appeal to kids. A nice way to introduce young listeners to this pivotal figure.
