As soon as Thomas Jefferson learned to read, he found his passion: books, books, and more books! Before, during, and after the American Revolution, Jefferson collected thousands of books on hundreds of subjects. In fact, his massive collection eventually helped rebuild the Library of CongressÂnow the largest library in the world. Barb Rosenstockâs rhythmic words and John OâBrienâs whimsical illustrations capture Jeffersonâs passion for the written word as well as little-known details about book collecting. Author and artist worked closely with experts to create the first picture book on Jeffersonâs love of reading, writing, and books. An authorâs note, bibliography, and source notes for quotations are also included.
