This beautifully illustrated book about Eisenhower's youth is more than a children's picture book. Roy Bird, Kansas author and Washburn University professor, has filled it with the rich biography of one of America's most remembered presidents, and the beautiful illustrations by Gwen Battis perfectly compliment the story.

We are certain that Little Ike will become a highly regarded piece of presidential heritage about Dwight D. Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States.Softcover, 32 pages, many color illustrations.
