Reagan served two terms as Governor of California. He was elected President of the United States at a time when the country needed a positive and enthusiastic 100% American leader. As this author describes him, Reagan "always seemed to have the right words to say at the right time" and "he spoke powerfully to unite the nation."
It is important for children to be introduced to Ronald Reagan as he really was and not as he is caricatured in many school textbooks. He was our greatest president of the 20th century. This book is a good antidote to some of the misinformation included in some school text books. The name of this book especially for children is The Remarkable Ronald Reagan by Susan Allen.
