Enjoyable children's book about Founding Fathers

What did you love best about Worst of Friends?

A funny but true story for children, acquainting them with some of the Founding Fathers.

Any additional comments?

This is a short book but worthwhile for children who want to hear about Jefferson and Adams, whether studying them for school or otherwise.
