"I loved The Presidents Did What? As a father of seven and a history buff, I loved how the book found a unique way to teach and keep kids interested in history. I knew my kids would love it, but I wasn't prepared for the meaningful conversations we had after reading the book. This book will stay on our bookshelf as my boys get older."

--Matt Paxton, father of seven children, and host of the hit shows Legacy List with Matt Paxton and Hoarders

"In the tale The Presidents Did What? by Wag Harrison, the ghost of President Millard Fillmore takes readers on a journey through the White House to speak to the other ghosts of one-term presidents. Here, Fillmore and other presidents, such as Martin Van Buren and Warren G. Harding, hash out the flaws and mistakes that ruined their chances at a second term. Not only did I learn a thing or two, but I found myself fully engaged in this children's book even as an adult. This children's book is one for the history books, literally, and belongs on everyone's shelf."

--Lori Starling, MFA, author of Toby Wears a Tutu
