Thomas Jefferson

Discover the fascinating life and interests of the Renaissance man who was our third president.

By Maira Kalman Illustrated by Maira Kalman Read By by Susie Berneis

Starred review. "Vibrant gouache paintings - some full-spread, some more intimate images - capture Jefferson’s family and colleagues, his interests and pursuits, his lavish home, and its inferior slave quarters. The voice is that of a curious child reporting fascinating research findings. The rangy tone, however, allows Kalman to supply a wealth of information... Playful but informative, as quick witted as Jefferson himself, this will...inspire young readers to learn more." - Booklist
