Children’s Books about the U.S. Presidents from George Washington to Joe Biden for Children in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Elementary

Katie Merkel

The information in this post and the trivia games was accurate as of December 17, 2021.

Hello everyone!

In preparation for Presidents’ Day, I have assembled a list of children’s books for all 45 presidents (we’ve had 46 presidencies, but only 45 individuals have served as president). Some books focus on more than one president, but each president also has a minimum of four books devoted to him. The more well-known presidents (e.g. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, etc.) have more book recommendations than lesser known presidents (e.g. William Henry Harrison, Millard Fillmore, etc.). The majority of the books were written for children in Grades 1-6. However, certain presidents also have books that are appropriate for children in Pre-K and/or Kindergarten.

Since every child learns to read at his/her own pace, the age range I listed for each book refers to the ages when I believe that a child will be able to sit through the reading of the book and engage with the content. Under each president’s heading, I listed the books in the following order: picture books, easy readers, and graphic novels and chapter books. For the headings, the presidents are listed in order and numbered with the first section being devoted to books that cover multiple presidents.

President Books for Pre-K

1. George Washington
16. Abraham Lincoln
27. William Howard Taft
32. Franklin Roosevelt
35. John F. Kennedy
42. Bill Clinton
44. Barack Obama
45. Donald Trump
46. Joe Biden

President Books for Kindergarten

Multiple Presidents
1. George Washington
2. John Adams
3. Thomas Jefferson
4. James Madison
16. Abraham Lincoln
26. Theodore Roosevelt
27. William Howard Taft
32. Franklin Roosevelt
35. John F. Kennedy
39. Jimmy Carter
40. Ronald Reagan
42. Bill Clinton
43. George W. Bush
44. Barack Obama
45. Donald Trump
46. Joe Biden

Warning, since all of the recommended books were written before 2022, some of the facts in the older books may no longer be accurate or complete because there have been more presidents since the books were published. (For example, Ronald Reagan is no longer the oldest president.) Another thing to realize is that books about Presidents Obama, Trump, and Biden will likely have less complete information due to how recently they were in office.

At the end of the post, I have included links to two free presidential trivia games that I created (one for Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Grade 1 and the other for Grades 2-6) and YouTube links to songs that list the presidents of the United States in order.
