Engaging bio of JFK for kids
Fast-moving biography that was enjoyable for adults and kids. We really enjoy this series on audio when we are in mood for a shorter title. My 12 year old loves these, but his 15 year old brother does as well.
I thought I knew the Kennedy story well, but even in this short book I found out some new facts. The emphasis on his early years was good. And my sons enjoyed learning more about a well-known President.
These are really nice on audio. He's not a splashy narrator but we find him very easy to listen to, and we stay completely engaged. After experiencing some bad narration recently, I all the more appreciate narration that doesn't intrude.
