“The illustrator AG Ford’s John Currin-like realism makes Jonah Winter’s new biography, ‘JFK,’ sparkle like a Life magazine collectors’ edition, but here it is the text that produces the true startle effect…. Winter opens his account at the end of the story with a whale of a first-person revelation: He was a 1-year-old perched on his father’s shoulders peering at the Dallas motorcade on November 22, 1963…. Amid the avalanche of 50th-anniversary assassination rehash, how many authors can offer such an extraordinarily personal connection to the tragedy?” (The New York Times Book Review)
“The text does a good job of introducing children to Kennedy…. This appealing title fills a need.” (Booklist)
“An appealing introduction to the Kennedy legend.” (School Library Journal)
“At every turn, Winter successfully turns his own admiration for JFK into a new profile of courage.” (San Francisco Chronicle) Read the review.>
