My review: I'm usually very picky about audiobooks. If the narrator doesn't keep me engaged, I lose my focus. Robert Slone was the perfect choice for this history book. Even though it was released a while ago, the audiobook is new on Audible. It's marketed for children, but as an adult who doesn't know much about American history this book was exceptionally well put together. It's narrated in a simple way, but it's not childish. The author, Rod Martinez, offers interesting, many times fun details about the life of American presidents. Another thing that I enjoyed was the way he sprinkled information about the first ladies in every chapter. I can easily say this is a literary piece for every age, not just for middle school.
