ESCRIPTION:“John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s contribution to his country will unfold, as President Lincoln’s did, with the passing of time. Every young American felt the spirit of his life and the tragedy of his death.
As President he had but three short years in office, but in that time he presented to the world a picture of America as a youthful, outward-looking nation ready to help men everywhere solve their problems and preserve the peace.
He had a special meaning to American youth. He proved that the younger generation has a special contribution to make to the nation, and it was his hope that our young people would develop their talents to the fullest.
John F. Kennedy is gone, but his radiant example should inspire each of us to achieve and accomplish great things.
” (from the preface written by Lyndon B. Johnson)

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
