Reviews

"Readers see JFK's competitive drive both in sports and in his defiance of Khrushchev; his intellectual side as a reader and author; his courage during World War II; and his dedication to service, as a "fill-in" for his dead brother Joe's political plans and as founder of the Peace Corps. Still, Rappaport refuses to turn this life into a hagiography, citing the disaster of the Cuban Missile Crisis and pointing out Kennedy's slow progress toward civil rights for African Americans." --The Horn Book
"A brief but inspiring portrait..." --Kirkus Reviews
"This beautifully illustrated and gracefully told story serves as a superior introduction to our 35th president."--School Library Journal
