Thomas Jefferson Builds a Library BSW1253

US$16.95

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 Congress—now the largest library in the world. Barb Rosenstock’s rhythmic words and John O’Brien’s whimsical illustrations capture Jefferson’s 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 Jefferson’s love of reading, writing, and books. An author’s note, bibliography, and source notes for quotations are also included.

美国第三任总统托马斯·杰斐逊从孩提时代起就喜欢读书,热爱收藏图书——他起初有上百本书,然后积累到几千册!有关于动物、关于自然、关于历史的;有英文、法文、希腊文和拉丁文作品……杰斐逊自青年时代建立私人藏书室后,就终身为收藏书籍努力,直到协助创建了全球闻名、位于华盛顿特区的美国国会图书馆。他终身热爱读书,鼓励他人阅读,度过了与书相伴的一生。
