Worst of Friends: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the True Story of an American Feud By Suzanne Tripp Jurmain


Back of Book:

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were good friends with very different personalities. But their differing views on how to run the newly created United States turned them into the worst of friends. They each became leaders of opposing political parties, and their rivalry followed them to the White House. Full of both history and humor, this is the story of two of America’s most well-known presidents and how they learned to put their political differences aside for the sake of friendship.

My Review: I consider myself to be an enthusiast when it comes to reading about early American history. When I saw this book at the library I knew I had to add it to my to be read pile. (which is growing rapidly) This picture book shows a beautiful glimpse into the lives of Presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. It discusses the issues they had and the problems that came from it. Illustrator Larry Day did an excellent job of bringing these two men to life. I truly enjoyed reading the story.
