The President and Me: John Adams and the Magic Bobblehead
The President and Me: John Adams and the Magic Bobblehead offers a new *twist* on historical fictionAva and her stepbrother J.P. are on their way to the wedding of Ava's aunt. It's hard enough having to share your mom with a new-to-you sibling but to share the fun of a wedding seems wholly unfair. But at least Ava can spend time with her Grandpa Ed (even if J.P. has to tag along). Grandpa has plans to show them the highlights of Boston. First stop is John Adams house where J.P. buys a bobblehead with unique properties--like talking!
As the kids go through the house, the bobblehead puts in his two cents worth. And before they know it, the kids have traveled back in time to the early years of America. Getting a first-hand glimpse at history is a lot more fun than walking through a museum!
Ava and J.P. take several trips back in time, visit the Freedom Trail in Boston, meet some obnoxious teens at the wedding, and try to keep the bobblehead from misbehaving at the ceremony. You'll have to get the book to find out all about their adventures. Ava and J.P. not only learn some history, but they learn some life lessons as well. The President and Me is a highly entertaining series that helps bring history to life for middle grade readers!
