great book makes it interesting for my kids while teaching them how to read....it is the next level which has more sentences to read and a few big words as well as learning history from ages ago

Appalling revisionist history. Thomas Jefferson meets the ghosts of some Native Americans (what sort of wacky "biography" is this?) and one of the ghosts smiles at him and wishes him peace, so (actual way the book ends): "From that day on, Tom learned to like and respect people of all kinds. They all had much to offer. When he grew up, Tom always remembered those friendly people. He thought 'everyone has something good to give and get from this country. We can all live in side by side in peace. We can learn from one another and share the wonderful gifts of America." (With a picture of him next to an old black guy and an American Indian guy.)

Surely there's something positive to teach children about Thomas Jefferson that doesn't make a mockery of Jefferson's treatment of the American Indians when he was president. I won't even get into the slavery part, because that's just self evident. But the American Indian angle of this book is absolutely appalling, considering Jefferson's role as the original architect of widespread "Indian Removal," and the official US policy of stealing land from the native population.

I think a little bit of whitewashing history can be appropriate for young children: let them learn about the great men and women of the past as symbols, and fill in more information about them as flawed individuals. But setting up a story whose entire point is that Jefferson treated the Indians kindly (because of a ghost?) is offensive and completely erases the millions of real people that his legacy has hurt. If they were going to completely make up a story (I repeat: a ghost), surely they could have found something else... his role in establishing public schools in Virginia is something young children might identify with and understand.
