The Our Presidents Series is perfect for elementary and junior high age students learning about U.S. History. Each book chronologically covers the life of the featured president from birth to death. It also contains “interesting facts” that are clearly displayed in the margins, detailed timelines, a glossary, a complete list of our U.S. Presidents with details on each president, and additional Presidential facts and resources for further research.

I did feel this particular edition on Woodrow Wilson was a little bit lacking compared to the rest of the series. Also there was a glaring error on page 32 that made me cringe. "On January 8, 1818, Wilson had an opportunity to speak to Congress about his ideas for world peace." No he didn't considering he was not alive in 1818; nor was he president, James Monroe was. The year should have been marked 1918. Considering this is a resource for students the decade discrepancy does make a huge difference.

Before there "The West Wing" made Dr. Josiah Bartlett the president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson was the first college professor to make it to the White House, a fact which has inspired me for most of my life. In this juvenile biography of Wilson for the Our Presidents series, Carol Brunelli and Ann Graham Gaines tells the story of how this scholar, whose first name was actually Thomas, became the most idealist president in the nation's history. Young students will also be interested to learn that historians suspect Wilson might have suffered from a learning disability, which would mean that George W. Bush would not be the first president to overcome that disability.
The first chapter of this informative little volume not only establishes the idea of Wilson as a scholar, but also shows how his written works constituted rather prominent critiques of the American system of government. The second chapter covers his entry to politics as Wilson went from being a professor at Princeton to the university's president, and then the reform oriented governor of New Jersey. After only two years as governor, Wilson became the Democratic candidate for president in 1912, and with Theodore Roosevelt running a third party campaign against his hand picked successor, William Howard Taft, Wilson was able to take advantage of the split to win the White House.
Brunelli and Gaines devote two chapters to Wilson's tenure in the White House. The first focuses on Wilson as a reformer in the White House, lowering tariffs and establishing the national income tax (with varying rates), reforming banking, and improving working conditions (including making it illegal to hire young children). The final chapter looks at Wilson's leadership during the First World War, because although Wilson campaigned for re-election on a pledge to keep the United States out of the war, Wilson ended up seeing German aggression as making it necessary to make the world "safe for democracy." Much of the chapter is devoted to Wilson's failed efforts after the war to get the United States involved in the League of Nations, including his debilitating stroke. But the authors make it clear that Wilson's beliefs have been vindicated, not only by receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, but by the founding of the United Nations, which is seen as being based on Wilson's goals.
As always in addition to the main text providing the basic biographical information about Wilson's private and public life, there are sidebars on topics such as Wilson's first wife and the Committee on Public Information. The margins are crammed with Interesting Facts such as Wilson's first memory was hearing Lincoln had been elected (he would have four) and that he was a baseball player as a boy. The back of the book has a Time Line covering Wilson's life, Glossary Terms, a list of Our Presidents, Presidential Fact, and places to look For Further Information. The volumes in the Our Presidents series work well either as introductions to each president or as a second biography that starts to provide more details. The books are also illustrated with historic photographs and drawings, with this volume including what might be the oldest color photograph of a president that I have seen.
