Week 22: Jack's Path of Courage: The Life of John F. Kennedy

I'm the first to admit that books relating to social studies, history, politics, or government are definitely not the first books I choose to pick up. I disliked history and social studies topics as a kid and I think it was because my teachers never read me any great books like these. Doreen Rappaport does a fantastic job giving factual information about John F. Kennedy's life. She focuses on his early life, before he became president and many of the struggles that he had to overcome. It is written in such an inspiring way that the reader comes away feeling like they can take on the world.
This is just one of the many books Doreen Rappaport has written about famous people. Any of them is a true work of art.
