KIRKUS REVIEW

A little of the imagination and liveliness we have come to associate with Mr. Miers' writing seeps through into this prescription account of Thomas Jefferson, but not much. It is an efficient survey and like most of the others, gets in all the facts children should know about Thomas Jefferson by the time they are ten years old, and most of the feelings they should feel as well. Somehow during the course of the narrative, young Tom becomes a singularly ordinary boy and except for the mention of his deeds, he also seems an ordinary man. A rather disappointing mould for an exciting thinker and doer.
