Picture Book Puzzler: All the President's Books

Happy President's Day! I've compiled a list of a popular children's book characters that each have the same first name (or nickname) as a US president. Can you name the book AND the president? (Some names will fit multiple presidents - just pick one!) Let us know your guesses in the comments below. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Theodore Roosevelt (<em>Theodore and the Talking Mushroom</em> by Leo Lionni) 3. George Washington (<em>George &amp; Martha</em> by James Marshall) 4. Chester A. Arthur (<em>Chester's Way</em> by Kevin Henkes) 5. Gerald Ford (<em>Elephant &amp; Piggie</em> books by Mo Willems) 6. Calvin Coolidge (<em>Calvin &amp; Hobbes</em> by Bill Watterson) 7. James Madison (or Monroe, Polk, Buchanan, Garfield) (<em>James &amp; the Giant Peach</em> by Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake) 8. Harry Truman (<em>Harry the Dirty Dog</em> by Gene Zion, illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham) 9. Thomas Jefferson (<em>Thomas the Tank Engine</em> by W. Awdry) 10.
