Hardcover, 64 pages, Ages 8-12, 2003

Released on the eve of the 40th anniversary of his assassination, this addition to National Geographic's acclaimed photobiography series profiles the 35th President of the United States, a man of enduring fascination. The book follows John F. Kennedy from his privileged but sickly childhood through his studies at Harvard and heroism in the Navy to his sudden move into politics upon the death of his older brother, Joe. Young readers get an inside view of the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban missile crisis, and other highlights of Kennedy's thousand days in office. Through compelling text, duotone photographs, and Kennedy's own stirring words, Heiligman celebrates the life and legacy of this young President, who still looms large in the American public's memory and imagination. National Geographic's award-winning Photobiographies series provides middle-grade readers with pictorially based biographies of famous pioneers in their fields. With an emphasis on first person accounts and extraordinary archival photographs this stunningly designed series is both handsome and compelling. Maps, chronologies, resource guides, bibliographies, and indices make this the perfect choice for report writers.

Dimensions (in inches): 9-1/8 x 10-7/8.
