Kids' Books for Presidents Day!
Presidents Day? Presidents' Day? President's Day? The holiday's name varies by state, but the federal holiday is officially called George Washington's Birthday—although the holiday doesn't always land on Washington's actual birthday, thanks to the Uniform Monday Holiday Act.
But even thought the official holiday is only named for George Washington, we're taking an expansive interpretation of the holiday, and sharing kids' books about all kinds of US presidents—and the government in general.
From picture books to young adult literature, these books will help get kids thinking about this country's present and past. These stories will get young readers invested in our history—and help them grow into engaged citizens. Explore the collection below!
